Way Library presents "Mercy Talks: Stroke"

Posted: Wednesday, May 20, 2015 by: Rose Mills | Category: Health

To coincide with May being American Stroke Month, Dr. Eugene Lin, endovascular neurosurgeon at Mercy Neuroscience, will speak about stroke awareness and prevention.

Stroke is the fourth cause of death and a leading cause of long-term disability in the U.S. A stroke happens every 40 seconds nationwide and occurs when blood flow to the brain is interrupted. Dr. Lin will discuss stroke prevention and how to recognize and respond to sudden warning signs.

The program will take place at 7:00 p.m. on Wednesday, May 27 in the Mercy Family Activity Center on the library’s main level.

Free blood pressure screenings will be offered from 6:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.

This free event is co-sponsored by Mercy and Way Library and is open to the public. No registration is required. For more information, please visit waylibrary.info or contact the library at 419-874-3135 extension 119.
