May is national Stroke Awareness Month; did you know that less than 30% of Americans can name 1 sign or symptom of a stroke? Dr. Mark Murray and Centura Health are working hard to change that figure by increasing awareness around strokes and what can be done to help treat and prevent them. Always think BE FAST: Balance, Eyes, Face, Arms, Speech, & Time. If you notice in yourself or in someone else changes in function or ability to any of those areas seek out medical help in a timely manor. Many stroke complications can be helped or reversed if treated in enough time.

Bridging the Gap
Anna Marie Jones has been working as a life coach for Mile High United Way Bridging the Gap program since its inception. With a master’s degree in social work and a background in education she has brought her years of experience to the table to help youth transition out of the child welfare system. Bridging the Gap focus on youth age 18-24, providing supportive services to them as they navigate new challenges of adulthood. Upon leaving the welfare system most do not have the support system of a family or social network and are more likely to face crime, violence, and poverty – putting them at risk of becoming homeless. Life coaches at Bridging the Gap aim to become that supportive system for these young people.
