Community Engagement

The Division of Emergency Medicine, along with the department of Neurology, have been involved in the ANGELS initiative national stroke committee for the past year.

Angels have scheduled campaigns around Natal during the week of 19-23 February 2018, to raise awareness of stroke, risk factors like hypertension & diabetes, and ensure the public are able to recognise the early signs of stroke and access health care timeously.

Dr Garach spent some time at the first session at the Empangeni taxi rank, arms test uptake and message were both excellent. Further awareness days will be held in Isipingo, Warwick Avenue in central Durban, and Phoenix plaza over the next 3 days; the division will be active at the Warwick Avenue day this Thursday, more pictures will follow.
