VALPARAISO – Porter Health Systems will present “The Stroke Stops Here,” a seminar on stroke awareness and prevention, at 6 p.m. on Thursday, Aug. 18, at its Rehabilitation Campus, 1401 Calumet Ave. The seminar will be presented by Virgil DiBiase, a neurologist and stroke specialist.
“Fifteen years ago, stroke patients were basically ignored because it was thought not much could be done for them,” said DiBiase. “Now we have clot dissolving drugs and evidenced-based practices that show us patients who have a stroke can get better and go on to live a normal life. It’s really dramatic to see how well a comprehensive plan for treating stroke works.”
