In Australia, a stroke occurs every 9 minutes and more than 80 per cent of strokes are preventable. The City of Kalamunda is urging its community to be stroke safe by learning about this potentially deadly health issue at their free StrokeSafe talk on Friday 21 June 2019 at Woodlupine Family and Community Centre in Forrestfield.

Mayor John Giardina said, “We are pleased to be able to host the Stroke Foundation and its StrokeSafe speakers for this free event that could help save someone’s life. This workshop will provide our community with vital information on this disease and what they can do to prevent it from happening to them.”

The session will cover what a stroke is, how you can recognise the signs and what to do if someone is having a stroke. Most importantly, presenters will share how to prevent strokes from happening to you and people you love. Many presenters have personal experience with stroke and are willing to share their challenging yet inspirational journeys.

Registrations to attend are essential and can be made by contacting the City of Kalamunda on 9257 9958 or enquiries@kalamunda.wa.gov.au.
