Stroke. Treat it. Recognize it. Prevent it!

Community Out-Reach Education

South Hill – A stroke is a “brain attack.”  It can happen to anyone at any time.  Approximately 800,000 people have a stroke each year; about one every 40 seconds.  What are signs/symptoms of a stroke?  How important is it to get help quickly?  How can I prevent a stroke?

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 16th at 4:00 p.m. in the VCU Health CMH Education Center Auditorium at 125 Buena Vista Circle in South Hill.

Dr. Paul Weidman will be the speaker for the program.  He received his medical degree from West Virginia University School of Medicine in Morgantown, West Virginia.  He completed his residency in family practice at Wheeling Hospital in Wheeling, WV.  Dr. Weidman is board certified by the American Board of Family Practice.  He is a new member of the VCU Health CMH medical staff and practices at CMH Family Care Center located at 420 Durant Street in South Hill.

Reservations are not required for this program; however, they are recommended.  For more information or to register to attend, please call (434) 774-2550 or visit www.vcu-cmh.org.  Entrance to the VCU Health CMH Education Center Auditorium is to the left of the main hospital entrance.
