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.

F.A.S.T. stands for Face, Arms, Speech, and Time, and Samantha explains that it is an easy way to remember the signs and symptoms of a stroke. She emphasizes that calling 911 immediately is crucial, as every second counts in the event of a stroke.

Samantha is proud to work for the Heart and Stroke Foundation and believes strongly in its mission. The Foundation has been able to effect positive change and offers vital support to those affected by heart disease and strokes.

Understanding what a stroke is and how to identify the signs is crucial to better treating and understanding it. The Heart and Stroke Foundation is an excellent resource for those seeking help and support.
