Cushing series to focus on strokes
Cushing Memorial Hospital will continue its 2006 Community Education Series this month with the discussion: "Stroke: What's new in Acute Care Intervention and Prevention?"
Presenters will be Dr. Marilyn Rymer, medical director of Saint Luke's Mid-America Brain and Stroke Institute, and Dr. George Speer, head physician of Cushing's emergency room.
The doctors will discuss warning signs of a stroke and what to do if you or someone around you is having a stroke. They will also discuss procedures used to care for stroke patients at Cushing and within the Saint Luke's Health System.
The talk will be from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. Wednesday, April 19, in the second-floor conference room at the hospital, 711 Marshall St., Leavenworth.
The event is free to the public. However, space is limited so attendees are asked to RSVP to 684-1303.
