Registration is now open for the AHN Neuroscience Institute Annual Stroke Symposium.
Stroke can steal your abilities, freedom, your life, unless you know how to strike back. Within
minutes, brain cells begin to die and time is of the essence. Remembering Balance Eyes
Face Arms Speech Time at start of stroke symptom onset is an integral part of BE-FAST.
Stroke is the fifth leading cause of death in the United States and results in significant
disability and healthcare expenditures. Allegheny General Hospital is the region's first
Comprehensive Stroke Center. Our goal is to identify, educate, and treat stroke patients
with the highest level of care.
This symposium will provide health care professionals current, evidence-based practice
knowledge across the continuum of stroke care. The course reviews all major topics of the
examination and provides information regarding the latest guidelines and protocols for
managing stroke patients.
