According to the American Heart Association, each year in the United States, over 795,000 people have a stroke and about 25% of those are repeat strokes. It is the No. 5 cause of death and a leading cause of disability in the United States.
You are invited to join members of the Pierce County School Retirees Association as they welcome Guest Speaker, Carmen Lewis. Carmen currently works as a Regional Stroke Navigator for the CHI Franciscan Stroke Program. As a Stroke Navigator, Carmen monitors the care of stroke patients in the hospital, following their progression of care, and provides patients and staff with stroke education. She performs follow up calls to stroke patients who discharge from the hospital, supporting them to attend follow up appointments and answering any questions they may have.
Carmen is passionate about Stroke Education in our community.
