Stroke to be CMMC topic

LEWISTON — “F.A.S.T. Facts on Stroke” will be the subject of two Central Maine Medical Center Accenting Your Health presentations set for May.

Peggy McRae, director of outpatient cardiovascular services at the Central Maine Heart and Vascular Institute, will explain what happens when someone experiences a stroke. In particular, she’ll present the five symptoms of stroke and discuss what actions should be taken when someone appears to be having a stroke.

The program will be presented from 1 to 2 p.m. Monday, May 7, and from 6 to 7 p.m. Thursday, May 10. Both sessions will be held in the first-floor conference room in the Young Wing, located near the main entrance to CMMC at 60 High St.

There is no cost for attending the presentation.

Those interested in attending either of the programs are urged to register in advance by calling 795-8448, emailing [email protected] or registering online at www.cmmc.org. Interpreter services are available upon advance request.
