May is Stroke Awareness Month. Did you know that more women than men have strokes each year? Or, that African-Americans are more KARE-11 Logoimpacted by stroke than any other racial group in the United States? And, did you know, that stroke to happen to anyone, at any age? For those reasons, it’s important to know the symptoms and how to respond. We had Dr. Robert Brown from Mayo Clinic join us to talk about the warning signs and new treatments.
