HealthSouth Nittany Valley Provides Community Education Through “Surviving Stroke” Series
HealthSouth Nittany Valley Rehabilitation Hospital held “Surviving Stroke: Prevention” on July 11 at Mount Nittany Medical Center. The educational event gave members of the community a chance to interact with local healthcare professionals about stroke risk and prevention. This was the first in a three-part series of discussions which are free and open to the public. The next two sessions are August 3, 5-6 pm (“Emergency Care and Hospitalization”) and September 7, 5-6 pm (“Continuing the Journey of Recovery”). “As a post-acute provider of inpatient and outpatient stroke rehabilitation, one of our goals is to keep the conversation going about how we can prevent stroke, and how to better care for ourselves and for our loves one when a stroke occurs,” says Tracy Ewing, Director Marketing Operations, HealthSouth Nittany Valley. “Each session features a different panel of local experts available to answer questions and provide stroke education for our community.” For more information, call (814) 359-5607.
