HipHop Music Shown to Increase Stroke Awareness – Dr. Tarrel Speaks to KARE 11

The American Heart Association recently reported on the success of the “Hip Hop Stroke” initiative, which “uses hip hop music lyrics to effectively educate economically-disadvantaged, minority children and parents about stroke,” according to a Stroke Journal Report published on March 22, 2018 on the American Heart Association website.

“While only 3 percent of parents could identify all stroke symptoms in the FAST acronym before the intervention, 20 percent could immediately after and 17 percent could three months later.

Four of the children put in practice what they learned in the intervention and called 911 for real-life stroke symptoms, including one who overruled a parent’s suggestion to wait and see.” – Stroke Journal Report

Interest in this effective new spin on educating children and parents about how to recognize stroke symptoms prompted KARE 11 to share the story and get some insight from neurologist and stroke specialist Dr. Ron Tarrel. If you missed it, you can watch the April 26, 2018 interview below.

If you or a loved one may be experiencing symptoms of stroke, call 9-1-1.
Remember F.A.S.T.:

F – Face Drooping
A – Arm Weakness
S – Speech Difficulty
T – Time to Call 911

If you or a loved one are recovering after a stroke and looking for a neurologist to help with evaluation and care, call Noran Clinic at 612.879.1500 to schedule an appointment with a neurologist experienced in stroke.

Dr. Orehek Continues the Discussion of Parkinson’s Disease with WCCO Radio

Dr. Tarrel Explores Recent Concussion Studies

New studies were recently released in JAMA and Translational Psychiatry in September that suggest that the age when children start playing tackle football can significantly increase their future chances of suffering from neurologic problems such as behavioral issues and depression later in life. In fact, the study suggested that starting tackle football before the age of 12 may as much as double the risk of behavioral problems, and nearly triple the risk of depression. You might have seen the story from Forbes on Sept. 21, 2017: Playing Tackle Football Before Age 12 Linked to Neurologic Problems Later In Life, Study Finds, or from Time on Sept. 26, 2017: 20% of Teens Report Having Had a Concussion.

Dr. Ron Tarrel joined both WCCO Radio and KARE 11 News in the last weeks to break down what the studies show, what it means for kids in sports, and what to do if you suspect a concussion.
