RTH Stroke Foundation Holds 2 Seminars in LA

Yesterday, the RTH Stroke Foundation had two successful seminars. Starting off in Downey at the Rio Hondo Event Center, the Foundation educated attendees on stroke awareness and recovery. Attendees received Carotid Artery and Blood Pressure screenings. The Foundation would like to thank PIH Health and also Lillian Johnson who gave her testimony on how our carotid artery screenings saved her life!

Afterwards, the Foundation ventured to Long Beach Petroleum Club and educated attendees on Stroke and Sleep Apnea. Attendees received Cholesterol/Glucose and Blood Pressure screenings. Thank you to our Health Screening Sponsor: L.A. Care Health Plan

RTH’s Continued Commitment to Eradicate Stroke

In its continued effort to eradicate stroke as much as is humanly possible, the RTH Stroke Foundation made another substantial contribution to Keck School of Medicine of USC. The funds will be diverted to the Roxanna Todd Hodges Comprehensive Stroke Clinic and TIA Program of USC, where research is done in the area of stroke prevention and medicine. Aside from preventing strokes, and assisting survivors in the aftermath of stroke, the Foundation is proud to be a part of the medical enterprise focused on the research and treatment of strokes. To learn more about our partnership with USC, visit the Roxanna Todd Hodges Comprehensive Stroke Clinic page here.

In Memory of Diane

The Foundation is sad to announce the passing of someone that was close to us from a cause that was all too familiar. Diane Manarino unexpectedly suffered a major hemorrhagic stroke last week which ultimately caused her passing on June 30th, 2016. Diane was merely 59 years of age at the time of her passing and is survived by her daughters, Natalie and Nicole Manarino, and by her loving siblings: brothers Tom Dowdalls and Jim Dowdalls, and her sister, Katy Dowdalls. A memorial fund has been established in her name. To find out more information on Diane and how you can help the family in these troubling times, visit the  http://www.rthfoundation.org/diane-manarino-fund/ page.
