Time is brain: for every minute a stroke is left untreated, 2 million brain cells are destroyed. The sooner patients are treated, the higher the chances of survival with fewer disabilities. Patients with acute strokes and transient ischemic attack (TIA) are assessed and treated at the right place, the right time and by the right professionals thanks to ultra-specialized stroke centres at the Montreal General Hospital and The Montreal Neurological Institute and Hospital.
This workshop is part of the design process for the agri-food module of the BRIDGE to Convergence of Health and Economics. It will focus specifically on fruits and vegetables,and their health (protection against micro-nutrient deficiency, obesity, diabetes and other chronic diseases) and wealth (economic contributions for farmers, agri-food actors and healthcare cost containment) consequences.
