Cary Medical Center is announcing two new community education initiatives aimed at helping Aroostook residents live safer and healthier lives.

The first program is a continuation of the home fire safety training that has been a huge success across the County. This program has provided smoke detectors and fire escape planning to area residents, and will now incorporate carbon monoxide poisoning prevention resources and training.

The second program is the launch of the Siruno Stroke Prevention Program which will provide classes and screenings for people who may be at risk for stroke. The program will focus on four main stroke risk concerns: hypertension, diabetes, nutrition and physical activity.

Cary will be holding a press conference on these initiatives on Tuesday, August 15, with program administrators and partners available for interviews.
