HEART & STROKE WEBINAR AND VICTORIA LIFELINE PRESENTATION
When: March 20, 2020; 12:30 -3:30 P.M. / Where: RTAM Boardroom
The webinar is from Heart & Stroke:
Heart & Stroke has released its 2019 Report called
(Dis)connected: How unseen links are putting us
at risk. The Report, for the first time, examines the
complex connections that link heart conditions,
stroke and vascular cognitive impairment. By
analyzing available data and published studies,
as well as interviews with patients and families
and consumer polling, we have found many
strong associations between these conditions,
the challenges faced by and impact on the people
experiencing them, and how the health system
supports them through their journeys.
The presentation is from Vicki Russenholt of
Vicki from Victoria Lifeline will be presenting
“successful aging”, this presentation will be
beneficial for individuals who may be facing some
health challenges (of any age), live alone or caring
for a loved one. Education and being proactive is
key to our wellness, only 30% of how well we age is
based on genetics, the rest is lifestyle. Two things
that will help you age successfully are healthy
living and knowing what “tools” are in your tool
kit & be willing to use them when you need them.
She will provide examples of many “tools” that are
available, one of them being Victoria Lifeline.
