Strokes – caused by blood clots or ruptures in the brain’s
blood vessels – can occur quite suddenly with very little warning.
The symptoms can often be overlooked or confusing, and include things
like numbness in the face or limbs, loss of vision, severe headache, and
a sudden difficulty speaking or understanding speech. Knowing these warning
signs can help ensure treatment begins as soon as possible, which can
greatly improve chances of survival.
To learn more about strokes, their warning signs, and the best ways to
prevent them, join Dr. Jon Gray, Medical Director of the Memorial Hospital
Emergency Department, for
Stroke: Warning Signs and Prevention, a free seminar that will be held on Friday, July 28 at 12 noon in the
