Learning About Strokes with Samantha Berscht


Calgary, Alberta – The Heart and Stroke Foundation is committed to helping and treating those affected by heart disease and strokes. In a recent episode of Built Modular, Gabrielle Bejarano sat down with Berscht, the Director of Health Policy and Systems Division, to discuss the importance of stroke awareness.

Berscht revealed that she has a personal connection to heart disease and strokes, having lost both of her grandparents to the conditions when she was a child. She emphasizes that strokes are a health condition that can affect anyone and highlights the vital importance of identifying the signs of a stroke with the helpful acronym F.A.S.T.
