Strokes and Stroke Prevention

Stroke is among the top causes of disability and death in the world.  We will discuss what a stroke is, the signs and symptoms of stroke, how to prevent a stroke from happening and how to treat a stroke once it has occurred.  Questions and interruptions are welcome, and in fact, nothing makes me happier then to stop showing my slides and instead answer the burning questions which everyone has when it comes to stroke, in particular when it relates to themselves or their families.
