Stroke Awareness Month – I’m Not Talking About Golf


I really enjoy golfing. I even have my own golf clubs thanks to a gracious Christmas present from my inlaws a few years back. But if I’m lucky, I get out to golf at least once per year, but no more than three times. I really think I need to get out more, especially since my father-in-law once replied to a simple question of, “Which club should I use?” with , “The way you’ve been hitting, it really doesn’t matter.”

But this photo isn’t really about golf, though the golf ball is the main subject of the photo. It’s the message on the golf ball that really counts!

Strokes can be deadly, so it’s important for people to know the signs of a stroke and call 9-1-1 immediately. I invite you to check out Intermountain Medical Center on Facebook. I work there and manage that Facebook page and will be sharing important information throughout the month on strokes and ways to identify them quickly.

Did you know that during a stroke, more than 32,000 brain cells die every second? Time is of the essence.

In golf, time isn’t of the essence. Go for accuracy!
