Food Collection Drive at Noran Clinic Nov.1 – Nov. 15

 

 

About this time every year, Noran Neurological Clinic and it’s Centers invites employees to give back during an Annual Giving Campaign. This year, we are rallying together in a two week food collection drive. Our drive begins today, November 1st, and will run through Thursday, November 15th.

Our goal is to help with the food shelf for Thanksgiving! All grocery items will be going to VEAP this year. VEAP has been around for 40 years and is a basic needs and social services organization whose programs help promote access to health food, stable housing and transportation. VEAP relies on donations from others to help support their mission. If you are visiting the Noran Clinic during our drive, we invite you to join us by bringing in a needed item to donate!

The collection boxes are located at each of our six locations in employee spaces, but outside donations can be given to front desk staff who will bring it to the clinic collection box.

 

 

Wondering what is needed? Here are some ideas from VEAP:

We look forward to making this a successful drive for the families that need it over the holidays!

Dr. Eleanor Orehek Discusses Cutting Edge and Upcoming Treatments for Parkinson’s Disease with KARE 11

As another well known celebrity figure shares that he has been living with Parkinson’s Disease for more than three years, this neurological movement disorder has once again come into the public spotlight. Alan Alda recently revealed to CBS’s “this Morning” that he has been living with a diagnosis of Parkinson’s Disease for more than three years.

“The reason I want to talk about it in public is that I was diagnosed three-and-a-half years ago, and I’ve had a full life since,” he said.

“I thought it’s probably only a matter of time before somebody does a story about this from a sad point of view,” he added, pointing out that one of his thumbs had been twitching in recent TV appearances. “But that’s not where I am.”

New advancements in the treatment of Parkinson’s Disease are making life after diagnosis much more positive, and new treatments continue to be explored. Dr. Eleanor Orehek joined KARE 11 in studio on Monday, August 13, 2018 to discuss some of the cutting edge treatments currently available, as well as some that are still in research stages. If you missed the interview, you can watch below. It has also been posted to the KARE 11 website here.

If you or a loved one have been showing signs of a possible movement disorder, or have been diagnosed and are seeking a neurologist for management of the disease and symptoms, call Noran Neurological Clinic at 612-879-1500 to make an appointment with a neurologist experienced in the diagnosis and treatment of movement disorders. As an expert in Parkinson’s Disease and other movement disorders, Dr. Orehek is also very involved in Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS) in the treatment of symptoms in appropriate surgical candidates.

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.
