October 22: Siruno Stroke Prevention Program

The Siruno Stroke Prevention Program was created in honor of Dr. Cesar Siruno, a long time and much admired General Surgeon at Cary Medical Center.  Dr. Siruno was a strong believer in health promotion and prevention.  The Siruno family established the Stroke Prevention Program as a tribute to Dr. Siruno and to carry on his legacy.  Mrs. Siruno, who was a registered nurse, said that she hoped the fund would help prevent families from experiencing the tragedy of major stroke that her family had endured. Working with the Jefferson Cary Foundation, a nonprofit public foundation based at Cary Medical Center, the Siruno family established a permanent endowment that over the past decade has offered annual professional education, community health promotion, health screenings and other initiatives focused on the prevention of stroke. Thanks to this project and the work of other organizations, the incidence of Stroke and Stroke related mortality in Northern Maine is on the decline. Siruno Stroke Prevention Program coordinator, Nancy Holmquist recently shared about some of the work that is accomplished through this generous fund.
