While virtual efforts have their advantages- including global reach – fact is in a country such as India strong on the ground efforts need to be continuously done.
The pandemic has obviously had an impact on such efforts. But we love to get on the field, and have again initiated- albeit in a calibrated manner, ground efforts. This post features some of those to raise stroke awareness and help stroke affected and their families.
Recently, on a Patiala visit, I took the chance to see some local chemists and made similar efforts there. Some photos here.
In Middle February, we visited several Chemists in Greater Noida area , gave a short presentation to each on stroke , its symptoms , and importance of time to for a stroke affected to reach a stroke ready hospital. Each readily agreed for a flyer to be posted on their shop fronts, for awareness of all visitors there as well. As can be understood, many of them could be stroke affected as well. The flyers carry an invitation as well to join our WhatsApp community of Stroke Warriors. Some photos of the visits are here.
