Belgorod State University medical students Victoria Kravtsova, Kristina Selezneva and Irina Misan delivered an 'Information Hour' on 'World Stroke Day' to raise awareness of the causes, symptoms and treatment of strokes and stroke victims
Their efforts were supervised by University librarian Olga Anokhina, whose enthusiasm drove the project. The students gave a talk to peers from many Institutes, and quizzed their fellows on their knowledge of strokes.
The University encourages any efforts to raise awareness of medical issues, and promotes a healthy lifestyle among staff and students alike. When you see something is not quite right, remember, act FAST!
F – Face. One side of the face becomes paralysed. Can they smile?
A – Arms. Can the person raise both arms and keep them there?
S – Speech. Is the person slurring their words, or sounding strange?
T – Time. Time to call an ambulance. The shorter the period of symptoms, the better the chance of recovery.Photo Gallery
