This year, the annual Strides Against Stroke Walk goes virtual, and officials with the Hospitals of Providence invite the community to join in and take strides towards stroke awareness.
“Due to the current health crisis, The Hospitals of Providence will be holding its annual Strides Against Stroke Walk in a manner that will keep participants safe while also raising awareness and educating the public about one of the country’s largest health risks, stroke,” THOP officials shared via a news release.
