May is Stroke Awareness Month and Healthsouth Desert Canyon Rehabilitation Hospital is bringing together the community to learn more about stroke prevention, rehabilitation technology and treatment.

The event will be held at Healthsouth on Friday, May 9, 2014 from 1:00 – 4:00 pm. Healthsouth is located at 9175 West Oquendo Road, Las Vegas, NV 89148.

Stroke specialists will be on hand to answer questions, and you can take advantage of:

And at 2:45 pm there will be a live demonstration of how to integrate animal assisted therapy dogs into stroke rehabilitation.

Healthsouth is a partner facility with the Las Vegas Pet Partners affiliate program, Love Dog Adventures, and Benny, a miniature poodle, will be on hand to work with one of his ongoing clients and show the guests how he works with both Occupational and Physical Therapists and stroke patients.
