Mayo Clinic, the Wall Street Journal’s Shirley Wang, the American Academy of Neurology, the American Stroke Association and the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke will be participating in a Twitter #strokechat Wednesday, May 29 from 1-2 p.m. ET.
May is National Stroke Awareness Month. Stroke is a leading cause of death in the United States, killing nearly 130,000 Americans each year—that’s 1 of every 18 deaths, according to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention. Stroke costs the United States an estimated $38.6 billion each year. On average, one American dies from stroke every 4 minutes.
Topics we’ll discuss include risk; causes; prevention; symptoms; treatment methods; and new therapies and research. But come with questions of your own. Plenty of experts will be on-hand to answer.
