Want to learn more about strokes?

The CHEC Library: The Community Health Education Center houses a library of books that may be able to offer more detail into the subject. The CHEC is located at Salem Hospital in Building D and is open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.


The CHEC Yourself Podcast: In April of 2021, Sarah Daniels (Salem Health’s Stroke Navigator) was kind enough to share her knowledge on the CHEC’s podcast “CHEC Yourself.” You can access that episode through any podcast streaming service or by clicking this link:


CHEC Facebook Live events: Come join our “Tuesday Talks at 1 O’Clock” where we offer education on topics of concern to the community. During May, we will be focused on providing more content on how to prevent and recover from stroke.
