Sierra Vista Regional Medical Center recently sponsored the Inaugural San Luis Obispo County Saving Strokes Golf Event. The event is organized through the American Stroke Association and encourages stroke survivors and their caregivers to get out and be active. The program is designed for all levels of experience.

Nearly two dozen survivors and caregivers participated in the event which paired Sierra Vista physical therapists with stroke patients. Some were in wheel chairs with extremely limited mobility and others were previous athletes who hadn't experienced the thrill of the game since suffering their stroke. It was an inspiring day!

Sierra Vista Regional Medical Center is a Primary Stroke Center.
