Bengaluru: In an attempt to increase stroke awareness in the city, Gleneagles Global Hospitals has set up a Stroke “Museum on the Move”, consisting of 13 informational posters, which is set to circulate throughout various locations in the city. The exhibition began its journey on October 29th, also observed World Stroke Day, at BGS Gleneagles Global Hospitals in Kengeri.
The exhibition consists of 13 informational posters that cover all the basic facts and information one needs regarding strokes. The information provided follows the flow right from what the brain is to what a stroke is to stroke symptoms, diagnosis, treatment, rehabilitation, and prevention. The exhibition also provides additional information on strokes regarding neurosonology and the role of neurosurgery in the diagnosis and treatment of strokes.
The posters supply information in both English and Kannada, in order to have a larger effect on the overall population of Bengaluru. The final poster demands a call-to-action, requiring each and every audience member to take a pledge to create and spread stroke awareness. In addition to these posters, awareness talk sessions were organized by Dr Suryanarayana Sharma, Consultant Neurologist and Stroke Specialist at BGS Gleneagles Global Hospitals.
The exhibition was previously displayed at Mindtree in the Global Village Tech Park, where it remained until November 30th. It was then moved to Bosch at Bidadi, where it will be displayed until December 7. Previously, the exhibition was also displayed at BGS Gleneagles Global Hospitals, Kengeri and Lalbagh gate. The exhibition was open to employees of Mindtree, but the exhibition at Kengeri and Lalbagh was open to the general public, helping Gleneagles Global Hospitals edge closer to its mission of spreading awareness to 15,000 residents of the city. Volunteers were present at the event to guide the audience and help them understand the information from the posters.
