The attendees of Health Journalism 2018 got the chance to tour the Barrow Mobile Stroke Unit manufactured by Excellance, Inc.

Attendees of Health Journalism 2018 will likely have a difficult choice to make between this year’s two optional daylong field trips to Barrow Neurological Institute, Mayo Clinic, Banner University Phoenix, University of Arizona College of Medicine, and the Circle the City medical respite center for the homeless.

One field trip will first stop at the Barrow Neurological Institute, where they will visit the Muhammad Ali Parkinson Center, featuring a chance to try out the center’s unique balance machine.

The group will move on to watch a live brain surgery, with the chance to communicate directly with the surgeon in the operating room, and then tour a mobile stroke unit that delivers specialized care before a patient even reaches the hospital.
