LEWISTON — “Stroke: Signs and Symptoms” is the topic of a presentation set for the Thursday, Feb. 17, meeting of the Central and Western Maine ICD Support Group.

Certified emergency nurse Michelle Gosselin, RN, will describe the signs and symptoms of stroke and why getting immediate medical attention is critical when stroke is suspected.
