Remember ‘BE FAST’ in Recognition of National Stroke Month

It stands for: balance, eyes, face, arms, speech and time. Download this flyer to become familiar with the symptoms, and share this important information with others. Visit Mary Rucho, RN, NP, at an informational table on stroke awareness May 24 and 31, University Campus, near the gift shop. And remember, if you suspect someone is having a stroke, call 911 immediately.
