Cerebrovascular accident (CVA) is the medical term for a stroke. A stroke is when blood flow to a part of your brain is stopped either by a blockage or the rupture of a blood vessel. There are important signs of a stroke that you should be aware of and watch out for. For more information, join Medtronic’s booth in collaboration with France AVC!
The digestive system made up of the gastrointestinal tract (GI), liver, pancreas, and gallbladder helps the body digest food. Digestion is important for breaking down food into nutrients, which your body uses for energy, growth, and cell repair. Some digestive diseases and conditions are acute, lasting only a short time, while others are chronic, or long-lasting. Medtronic’s booth has more information for you in store! Join them and the Association Francois Aupetit on Wednesday!
Diabetes is a long-term condition that causes high blood sugar levels. In the case of type 1 Diabetes, the body does not produce insulin. Approximately 10% of all diabetes cases are type 1. Type 2 Diabetes - the body does not produce enough insulin for proper function. Approximately 90% of all cases of diabetes worldwide are of this type. Come along on Thursday to find out more! Medtronic and Aide aux Jeunes Diabétiques (AJD) will offer you all the information you need to know.
Cardiovascular diseases are the number 1 cause of death globally: more people die annually from CVDs that from any other cause, according to the World Health Organisation. Most cardiovascular disease can be prevented by addressing behavioral risk factors such as tobacco use, unhealthy diet and obesity, lack of physical activity and harmful use of alcohol.
