Frazier Coalition for Stroke Education Webinar Series

Presented by the Frazier Coalition for Stroke Education Webinar Series

Strokes can arise when we least expect them. Despite being a leading cause of death in the U.S., not everyone is familiar with their stroke risk and knowing how to prevent one.

Join us for a series of stroke webinars to learn about warning signs, prevention, treatment, and more. Doctors from Magee Rehabilitation, Temple Health, and the Vickie and Jack Farber Center for Neuroscience will help discuss everything you need to know.
