Stroke - Treat it. Recognize it. Prevent it!

A stroke is a “brain attack.”  It can happen to anyone at any time.  Approximately 800,000 people have a stroke each year; about one every 40 seconds.  What are signs/symptoms of a stroke?  How important is it to get help quickly?  How can I prevent a stroke?

If you are seeking answers to questions like these you should attend May’s C.O.R.E. (Community Out-Reach Education) Program at VCU Health Community Memorial Hospital to learn more about stroke.
