May Is Stroke Awareness Month

Stroke or cerebrovascular accident (CVA) occurs when the blood supply to the brain is disrupted due to lack of blood supply (ischemic stroke) or bleeding in the brain (hemorrhagic stroke).

In the U.S. stroke is the 5th leading cause of death and about 130,000 people die due to stroke each year. Reduce your stroke risk through lifestyle changes – eating healthy, regular physical activity, avoiding smoking and drinking alcohol.
