Hoping to raise awareness of what to do if someone is suffering a stroke, St. Thomas Health used Director of Schools Bobby Cox as an example Monday morning, staging a drill at Warren County High School.“People don’t realize the signs and symptoms,” said St. Thomas Health executive director Ranee Curtis who organized the drill. “Our goal is to raise awareness so people can recognize what is going on and get the proper treatment.”Cox, the 44-year-old director of schools, played the part of the stroke victim suffering the onset in the WCHS office. His symptoms were reported to 911 and an ambulance was dispatched.
