Rebecca A. Stoliker, BSN, RN, Director of Nursing ServicesOffering more tips for healthy living and disease prevention, the next McKenzie Health System (MHS) “Healthy Living Together” virtual series will focus on Stroke Prevention. The online event will be held on Wednesday, July 21 from noon to 1 p.m.

Rebecca Stoliker, Director of Nursing Services at McKenzie Health System, will share tips for preventing and recognizing strokes; all participants who complete a short quiz after the presentation will be entered to win a gift card. Someone in the United States has a stroke every 40 seconds, and strokes are a leading cause of disability, according to the Centers for Disease Prevention and Control (CDC).

The free webinar is live, with the chance to watch via Zoom or call in via phone, and it will also be recorded and shared on the McKenzie YouTube channel and Facebook page after the event. Participants will have the opportunity to type interactive questions and comments for the Q&A discussion.

“Strokes are a serious public health issue and we are fortunate to have a local expert who will share tips on prevention and healthy living,” said Louise Blasius, LMSW, LPC, Director of Human Services at McKenzie Health System and Healthy Living Together Chair. “Rebecca is wonderful at sharing medical information in an easy-to-understand format and answering questions attendees may likely have.”
