While you may be aware of some of the basic possibilities of eye injuries, ask yourself this question:  Am I doing everything I can to  protect my eyes? If you answered no, you are not alone.

According to the American Heart / Stroke Association, although stroke is often viewed as occuring primarily in the elderly, it also strikes infants, children,young adults and can even occur before birth- and with equally devastating results. The risk of stroke in children is greatest in th first year of life, and peaks during the perinatal period (roughly the weeks before and immediately after birth). Stroke also occurs in about one of every 4,000 live births. The risk of stroke from birth through age 18 is nearly 11 per 100,000 children per year.

Please join the JCHC staff for a wealth of information concerning pediatric stroke.  The health fair, sponsored by Mississippi Shiine project  will consist of free blood pressure screenings, glucose testing, and BMI testings. We look forward to seeing you.  Refreshments will be served!!
