Renowned Stroke Specialist to Talk about New Treatment Options Feb. 19 at Silver Cross
Each year, nearly 800,000 Americans suffer a new or recurrent stroke. That means on average, a stroke occurs every 40 seconds. Time is brain, so it’s critically important that treatment be started fast. But knowing who to turn to for help and recovery can be just as critical. Fortunately, you now have access to the one of the best neuroscience teams in the world nearby at the Silver Cross Neuroscience Institute.
