Courtney Cook is Back on Course Because of UAMS

UAMS Patient Courtney Cook

As a healthy, 38-year-old competitive runner, I wasn’t sure what to think about some of the frightening symptoms I was suddenly experiencing. As it turned out, I had endured a stroke and was rushed to UAMS. Through its AR SAVES program, specialists there like Dr. Nicolas Bianchi not only gave me top-notch treatment, but helped me understand what happened and had me focused on a speedy recovery.
Thanks to UAMS, I’m now back to running half marathons and enjoying life.
