Volunteer working to improve stroke system of care in Vermont.
Sharon Kenney has made it her mission to education community members, health care providers and legislators about stroke.
She wants people to know the signs and symptoms of stroke so they can get the best care fast.
Sharon is the Stroke Program Coordinator at the University of Vermont Medical Center. She traveled to Washington, DC with the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association this summer to promote the FAST stroke telemedicine act.
Now she is helping with advocacy efforts to improve and establish stroke systems of care in Vermont such as stroke facility designation.
Join us and Sharon in our stroke advocacy efforts and learn the stroke symptoms below.
F – Face drooping
A – Arm Weakness
S – Speech Difficulty
T – Time to call 911
Let’s hope the congressional delegation learns FAST!
