Bet You Haven’t Seen a Brain Quite This Big

May 05, 2016

Walk-through inflatable brain gives the big picture during F.A.S.T. Stroke Action Day at University Hospital.

WHO:
The public is invited to tour the colorful inflatable brain and learn about how it works – and what can go wrong. Members of our Stroke Team will be available for interviews and to help people complete a free stroke risk assessment. Christa Ladyko, University Health System Executive Director of Neuroscience & Rehabilitation Services, will be available for interviews.

WHAT:
May is Stroke Awareness Month, and University Health System is providing public education on how to recognize and react FAST to the signs of stroke – because when millions of neurons are being wiped out at wildfire speed, every second counts. FAST stands for Face, Arms, Speech, Time; a guide for evaluating the signs of stroke and seeking help as soon as possible.

WHEN:
Interviews available Thursday, May 5, 2016, 11 a.m. – 3:30 p.m.

WHERE:
University Hospital Sky Tower Lobby, 4502 Medical Drive
