Panel Discussion on World Stroke Day @Universal - Department of Neurological Sciences

October 29th is World Stroke Day. Stroke is a leading cause of death and disability globally. A stroke happens when the blood supply to part of the brain is cut off. Without blood, brain cells can be damaged or even die. Depending on which part of the brain is affected and how quickly the person is treated, the effects of stroke on survivors can be devastating to a person’s body, mobility, and speech, as well as how they think and feel.
