South Hill – Stroke is a serious, life-threatening medical condition that occurs when the blood supply to part of the brain is cut off.  Every minute the brain is oxygen deprived, brain cells are damaged.  The good news is, if the stroke is treated immediately, brain damage can be minimized. 
 
As a Primary Stroke Center, VCU Health Community Memorial Hospital is dedicated to the prevention and treatment of stroke.  American Stroke Month in May gives us an important opportunity to join together to prevent, treat and beat the number five killer in the United States.
 
How can a stroke be prevented?  What are clot busting drugs with new clot “retrievers”?  What are ways to beat stroke and manage fatigue and depression?
 
If you are seeking answers to questions like these you should attend May’s C.O.R.E. (Community Out-Reach Education) Program at VCU Health Community Memorial Hospital to learn more about stroke.
 
This FREE program will be on Tuesday, May 29th at 4:00 p.m. in the VCU Health CMH Education Center located inside the C.A.R.E. Building, 1755 N. Mecklenburg, Avenue, South Hill, VA.
 
Dr. Nina J. Solenski will be the speaker for the program.  She is an associate professor in neurology, subspecializing in cerebrovascular disease at the University of Virginia in Charlottesville, VA.  Dr. Solenski is a graduate of Jefferson Medical College (Philadelphia, PA ’89).  She received her residency training at Dartmouth Mary-Hitchcock in internal medicine and at University of Virginia in neurology.  She completed an ACGME accredited cerebrovascular disease fellowship training program at UVA in clinical and basic research.  She is currently dual APBN boarded in general and vascular neurology.
