Press Release Health Fair

The RayAsta Foundation was established to focus on Stroke Care; rehabilitation services, training, advocacy and education for persons in the community affected by Stroke.

We recognize that earning the trust and respect of the community is dependent on our commitment to these ideals.

Cecilia St Hilaire, CEO of the RayAsta Foundation stated “the statistics of stroke in Dominica is alarming. “There are two (2) stroke patients admitted to the Dominica China Friendship Hospital weekly. This is alarmingly high”. Full recovery outcomes for these patients are limited at best because:

  • The public does not recognize the symptoms of stroke
  • Understand the importance of early detection, diagnosis and treatment
  • Understand the disease and how it affects patients
  • Understand the importance of prevention, care and full recovery
  • Understand the importance of prevention, care and full recovery

A Health Fair themed “A Race to Wellness” will be held on Saturday, June 4th, 2022, in Roseau adjacent to All Saints University from 8AM to Noon in partnership with the Primary Health Care Unit and other private sector partners. Medical personnel will be available to speak to persons on matters relating to their health, diet, and emotional wellbeing. Blood pressure checks and diabetes checks will be undertaken. Special aides such as large grip feeding utensils and other special tools for stroke patients will be available for sale in support of the work ahead.
