In a bid to commemorate the world stroke day and to spread awareness on stroke and its preventability, Aster R V Hospital, J P Nagar organised a health talk on Stroke Awareness. The theme for the health talk was ‘stroke is preventable’ which was delivered by Dr. Sreekanta Swamy, Lead Consultant Neurology, Aster RV Hospital.
Around 180 people were participated in awareness program. Hospital also conducted fun games and Q&As related to stroke during the session with some goodies being handed over the attendees post the event.
Dr. Sreekanta Swamy, Lead Consultant Neurology, Aster RV Hospital, said, “We are pleased to witness huge participation. Stroke is becoming a worldwide epidemic, there is still not enough information and awareness about it. It is important to recognize the symptoms of stroke. Mostly stroke occurs suddenly and many people fail to recognize it as stroke which leads to delay in treatment. Stroke prevention can start from today. Stroke can occur at any age owing to various causes in the current lifestyle. Be prepared. Take care of your mind and body. About 15-20% stroke takes place among people below the age of 40 years but the stroke frequency increases steadily after the age of 60 years and maximum incidences are in the age group of 80 years.
REMEMBER STROKE IS NOW TREATABLE AND PREVENTABLE.
