ETMC will offer a free KnowledgeFirst Forum on Thursday, May 5, at noon at the ETMC Pavilion on the warning signs of stroke with Dr. Allison Hennigan with the ETMC Neurological Institute.

"East Texans face one of the highest stroke mortality rates in our state, and we are working to change that by providing stroke care and also community education that urges individuals to seek care quickly if they show symptoms of stroke," Dr. Hennigan said.  "The faster they seek care, the better their chance of survival and recovery."

ETMC Tyler was the first hospital in East Texas to become a certified stroke center as designated by the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations. The designation indicates the hospital is dedicated to providing high-quality stroke treatment and care.

A light lunch will be served. Free parking is available next to the Pavilion. The gate opens at 11:30 a.m. Please pre-register by calling 800-648-8141 and press 2.
