American Heart Association’s “Strokes for Stroke”

 

 

Strokes for Stroke 

 
Artworks will be on display from Oct 1st, 2019 until Nov 30th, 2019 with an opening reception on Friday, Oct 11th, 2019 from 6:00pm-8pm.
 

From the local chapter of the American Heart Association:
“Calling attention to Stroke awareness and the importance of art therapy in particular is so very important in our community,” said Dr. George Bakowski. “Most Americans can’t name one symptom of a stroke and we need to change that through awareness in order to improve patient outcomes.”

This program recognizes local individuals who have shown invincible strength, resilience, perseverance and aptitude in their fight against stroke. Art therapy is used as one method to help stroke patients recover. Creating images uses the physical and cognitive sides of the brain and making art combines the two. Art therapy has shown an early promise in assisting the patient with recovery issue such as verbal communication, depression and the physical pain associated with stroke.
