Jupiter, Fla. – On Wednesday, November 1, more than 100 health-conscious women came together
for a reception and panel discussion hosted by Jupiter Medical Center’s
Women’s Health Advisory Council at Mirasol Country Club in Palm
Beach Gardens. Liv Vesely, President of Jupiter Medical Center Foundation,
moderated the event, and neurologist, Dr. Jennifer Buczyner, the new Medical
Director for the hospital’s nationally accredited stroke program,
and Steven Seeley, Interim President and Chief Executive Officer, were
participants on the panel.
“Stroke is one of the leading causes of death and disability in the
United States, and 80 percent of them are preventable,” said Dr.
Buczyner. “It’s vital to teach the symptoms of having a stroke,
so people can recognize them and get the lifesaving help they need.”
Seeley added, “When it comes to stroke, you need to act as quickly
as possible to prevent serious damage or death which is why we are committed
to education about early detection and prevention of stroke, and working
hard to create a comprehensive stroke program at Jupiter Medical Center.”
On February 28 and March 1, 2018, the Women’s Health Advisory Council
is hosting a Women’s Health & Wellness Conference at PGA National
Resort & Spa in Palm Beach Gardens. Guests will enjoy keynote speaker
Jillian Michaels, one of the foremost fitness experts in the world, and
