Seeing "Stars" at the Next USA Stroke Support Group Meeting
 

MOBILE - The "stars" are coming out to provide guidance for reducing your risk of stroke! Officially known as the Steps Against Recurrent Stroke, the STARS program will be presented at the next South Alabama Regional Stroke Support Group meeting at the University of South Alabama Medical Center.

The popular stroke support group will meet from 6 p.m.-7 p.m., Tuesday, Sept. 21 in the USA Medical Center's 10th floor dining room. The stroke support group meets the third Tuesday of each month.

Developed by the National Stroke Association, STARS focuses on educating and empowering stroke survivors about how - with a doctor's help and advice - to reduce risk for a recurrent stroke through lifestyle modifications and managing medical conditions that increase stroke risk.

In addition to the STARS presentation, the meeting will feature a healthy meal and door prizes. Reservations are requested and can be made by calling 471-7752 or e-mailing abeasley@usouthal.edu.

USA Medical Center is Mobile's only Gold Performance Achievement Award recipient for stroke care, awarded by the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association. Visit www.southalabama.edu/usamc/centers.html#stroke for more information.
