‘Different Strokes for Different Folks’ presentation to focus on stroke awareness

Time is brain. If you or a loved one is suffering a stroke, you need to act fast.

That’s among the lessons that will be shared during a Health Talk community wellness presentation sponsored by WellSpan Health. The Health Talk, titled “Different Strokes for Different Folks,” will be held at 6 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 18 at the South Hanover YMCA Sports and Wellness Complex, 650 Fairview Drive, Hanover.

Robert Sterling, M.D. , a WellSpan neurologist, will define and discuss the various types of stroke and various treatment options. Dr. Sterling will also share tips on how to identify stroke and reinforce the importance of quickly seeking medical attention.

The session is free to members of the public, but registration is required. Attendees will be entered into a drawing for a free blood pressure cuff. To learn more and register, visit www.WellSpan.org/YMCATalks. 

WellSpan is proud to serve as the official healthcare and sports medicine provider for the Hanover Area YMCA.
