2. Stroke is no friend to women. It kills more women than men and women have more strokes than men.

Because I am learning things I didn’t previously know and that’s impressive because I have done SO MUCH research on my health issues trying to find answers, or ways to overcome them that I could probably be a doctor at this point :)

I could not sit through 8 more hours of this. I find his delivery quite aggressive. He punctuates points as though poking a finger, repeating phrases that iterate the obvious like 'Stop Smoking', 'Get More Exercise', 'Do Pressups'. There is no structure - from food to exercise to smoking to statistics, then off to YouTube for some free videos. He is clearly passionate about the subject but has not really designed a course, but bought a camera and started talking.

Valuable information for anyone, but as someone working in the health field supercritical knowledge. The first-hand knowledge the instructor has plus the evidence-based information will be very helpful in working with patients. Excited to move forward in the course.

Have very complicated health problems so some of the objectives, excellent as they are, will never be achievable now unfortunately. But I can do as much as I can!

This course is very necessary especially if a stroke was in your family. I Had 2 people with stroke - females - my grandmother and her sister. My grandmother died immediately, in a second. She was a very active woman but also a heavy smoker. Her sister lived 7 years after her stroke paralysed on her right side of her body. She was a very active woman but with obesity. This was very sad too me watching her when she slowly changed into a plant, she could not communicate with anybody, Noone could help her. They and our families had no knowledge then about that disease and proper rehabilitation at that time. But we - women in XXI century have this course - and we can prevent not to have this terrible damage to our body and life which is a stroke. I highly recommend this course to everybody.
