Stroke Talk – Dr. Ronán Collins

Stroke Talk – Dr. Ronán Collins

A stroke awareness talk took place recently in Sacred Heart JNS hall.

On September 18th,  Dr. Ronán Collins, stroke specialist and consultant in Tallaght Hospital, spoke about how stroke is treatable, how lives can improve with better awareness, access and action, and how our stroke care services are improving all the time.

There was a great turn out on the night. It was lovely to see so many people from our schools and our local community attend this event. dr-ronan-talk

A huge thank you to Dr. Ronán for taking the time to come and talk to us.

We hope to organise a similar event again some time soon.
