National Stroke Awareness Month

May is National Stroke Awareness Month.  Stroke is the No. 2 cause of death worldwide and a leading cause of disability.  A stroke is a life-changing event – physically and emotionally. Every stroke is unique – and so is every recovery.


Join us to learn about stroke risk factors, warning signs, and how to get help if you or someone around you is having a stroke.

Led by a team of doctors, nurses, residents, and health profession students, this interactive presentation will be followed by time for Q&A.
