Free Community Health Education Seminar & Dinner at Summit Pacific Medical Center
Elma, Washington – The community is invited to attend a free community health education dinner on Friday, October 17th, from 4pm to 5pm at Summit Pacific Medical Center in Elma (600 East Main Street). The class, “What YOU Need to Know About Strokes,” will be led by Fawn Ross, ARNP and Stroke/Telestroke Coordinator at Providence St. Peter Hospital. Guests will be able to enjoy a free dinner during Ross’ presentation.
Ross’ presentation will touch on what a stroke is, who they affect, how they affect your body, and the life-saving responses one should take if having or witnessing somebody else having a stroke. Ross will also walk guests through what a stroke victim can expect upon arriving at the emergency department, including a demonstration on the Telestroke Robot used at facilities, like SPMC, that participate in the Telestroke Network. A question and answer session will follow.
Summit Pacific Medical Center has hosted a series of similar community health education seminars on the fourth Friday of every month all year. It appears there will be no classes in November and December at this time. However, the health education dinners are scheduled to resume in January 2015, with the 4th Friday of the Month schedule. Please visit www.summitpacificmedicalcenter.org to see any scheduled changes, cancelations, and/or updates.
