Local stroke survivors enjoyed a morning of golf instruction at Brookside Golf Club in Pasadena. The event, sponsored by Huntington Memorial Hospital, was part of “Saving Strokes,” a rehabilitation-through-golf program of the American Heart/American Stroke Association, offering stroke survivors the opportunity to add golf as a mental, physical and emotional rehabilitation tool in their journey to recovery.

Participants spent the morning working with golf pros and later enjoyed a luncheon with fellow survivors, physical therapists, and other members of the Huntington Hospital stroke center team.
