Jupiter Medical Center Hosts Panel to Discuss Stroke Prevention and Treatment for Women

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 renowned life coach and author. Additionally, guests will be able to attend their choice of three out of six educational sessions focused on areas such as wellness, orthopedic health, stroke, heart health, managing stress and self image.
