Spot a Stroke, Save a Life

Featuring Angela Gottesfeld, BSN, RN, CCRN,
Stroke Center Coordinator at UM St. Joseph Medical Center
Learn about risk factors, statistics, signs, and symptoms of stroke. More than 795,000 strokes occur each year in the U.S, the fifth leading cause of death in the country. Stroke causes more serious long-term disabilities than any other disease. Nearly three-quarters of all strokes occur in people over the age of 65 and the risk of having a stroke more than doubles each decade after the age of 55.

Angela Gottesfeld works closely with many departments at St. Joseph Medical Center to ensure patient safety and to educate people about the signs and symptoms of stroke. She oversees clinical case review, data collection, analysis, and reporting relative to compliance with standards for Stroke Disease Management in the hospital. She also performs liaison activities and enhances communication with patients, physicians, families, nursing, or other services, as necessary.

Free blood pressure screenings will be offered after the talk.
