Cypress Fairbanks Medical Center Hospital is proud to announce the development of a Stroke Support Group. The Stroke Support Group is open to the community and will work to help provide stroke survivors and their family members/caregivers with emotional support and education.

The Stroke Support Group will be held at Cypress Fairbanks Medical Center Hospital’s Professional Building at 11302 Fallbrook Drive. The meetings will take place on the first Thursday of every month at 7 p.m. The next group will meet on September 6, 2007 in the Professional Building Classroom 1.

Stroke continues to be the third leading cause of death in the United States. In fact, according to the American Stroke Association, someone dies of a stroke every three to four minutes. Educating the community on the risks and warning signs of stroke and embracing faster stroke care continue to be a mission of Cypress Fairbanks Medical Center Hospital. Collaborating with local Emergency Medical Services (EMS), the Stroke Team at Cypress Fairbanks Medical Center Hospital has implemented new processes for patients suffering from stroke to receive care that meets the guidelines of the Stroke Council of the American Heart Association and the American Stroke Association.
