Do you know that stroke is the 4th leading cause of death in the United States and that more than 133,000 people die from stroke every year? Do you know that anyone can have a stroke regardless of your age, race or gender, although African Americans have twice the risk of having a first-ever stroke as whites? Do you know the symptoms and what you should do if you think you or a family member is having a stroke?
If you aren’t sure of your own risks and what you should do, it is vitally important that you come to a Stroke Fair at Newark-Wayne Community Hospital on Monday, July 15th to learn more about this important topic. It will be held in the hospital’s main lobby from 10 a.m. – 1 p.m. and Dr. Cynthia Martinez-Capolino, Director of Stroke and Crystal Avon, R.N., Stroke Coordinator will be available to answer your questions. In addition, the Cancer Services Program of Wayne County/Cancer Resource Center, Wayne County Public Health and the Wayne County Rural Health Network will have information available on FREE smoking cessation and other services.
