May is stroke awareness month. Dr.Dennis Wang is a stroke specialist with CHI Franciscan Health- and provides us with important guidelines on awareness and practicing prevention–blood pressure being key in this area. We also meet Bill Monroe, a stroke survivor who underscores Dr. Wang’s insights and directions. Both highlight “FAST” as an indicator of a stroke happening: F–change in the face/drooping, A–arm weakness–difficult to lift/ hold straight out in front of self, S–slurred or difficult speech, T–time to call 911. www.heart.org
