John Kern, Capital Transit manager, holds an American Heart Association and Heart Disease and Stroke Prevention Program bus placard, with Janice Gray, Alaska Stroke Task Force member and Bartlett Regional Hospital nurse manager of the Emergency, CCU and Cardiac Rehabilitation departments. The new bus placards, installed on June 1, will list the F.A.S.T stroke symptoms - Face, Arms, Speech and Time - to inform the public on how to recognize a stroke. The American Stroke Association offers a wide array of tools and programs to assess cardiovascular health, educate yourself and share lifesaving messages of stroke prevention.
