Provided by the UAMS Institute for Digital Health and Innovation (IDHI) Stroke Program
November 18, 2019, the Woodlawn School District found the best way to inspire young minds with an enormous brain. Students saw the Mega Brain and became immediately curious and asked so many questions of the UAMS visiting guests. The UAMS Institute for Digital Health and Innovation (IDHI) Stroke Program provided a giant inflatable Mega Brain for K-12 students to walk-through and lessons about stroke, healthy lifestyles, telemedicine and much more. The Mega Brain program was an effective tool for teaching about stroke and stroke symptoms. Educating children and the public about how to recognize symptoms of stroke saves lives was the message both Marzella Backus, Assistant Director of the IDHI Stroke Program and Sherri Searcy, an Outreach Nurse for the program communicated with the children and staff. Older students were especially intrigued by the conversations about telemedicine and possibilities for their future.
