CALLING ALL GIRL SCOUTS! Girl Scouts get BRAINY with the Stomp Out Stroke Festival Patch!
The Stomp Out Stroke Festival is a great outing for your Girl Scout troop. Join UTHealth on Saturday, May 4, 2019 at the beautiful Discovery Green Park at 1500 McKinney St. to receive brain education and learn how to stomp out stroke and be brain healthy! After your program, enjoy family friendly performances, activities and music. Find out why we’re Houston’s Best Brain day!
The UTHealth Stroke Program is working to inspire a new generation of young women who are strong in both brain and body. We want young women to be owners of their own brain health and become health leaders of tomorrow. Together with the Girl Scouts of San Jacinto Council, we have developed this Girl Scout Patch initiative to encourage young girls to learn about stroke, brain health and promote healthy brain behaviors.
Patch objectives are to educate Girl Scouts about stroke, brain anatomy, brain function, brain health and promoting healthy behaviors. Through this knowledge, we will increase stroke awareness in the community and empower young women to share this knowledge with their friends and family to increase stroke awareness and promote brain healthy behaviors. While the girls are having fun with "brainy" activities, adults may be able to learn about stroke, brain health and receive free health screenings.
