Join us for the 2nd annual Power of Laughter Health Workshop and Comedy Luncheon.  This event will feature an all new show starring comedian, radio personality and comedy luncheon emcee, Alex Ortiz.  In addition to the luncheon and workshops, there will be entertainment, FREE health screenings, vendors, exhibitors, a silent auction, giveaways and a delicious, heart-healthy lunch.

Did you know the burden of stroke is greater among minorities than in any other group?  In fact, minorities have almost twice the risk of first-ever stroke compared with Causasians, and minorities, 35-54 years old, have four times the relative risk for stroke.

Power To End Stroke is an education and awareness campaign embracing and celebrating the culture, energy, creativity and lifestyles of African and Hispanic Americans.  It unites under-served communities to help make an impact on the high incidence of stroke with the community.

Join us and learn more about what you can do to help defeat the #1 disabler of Americans.
