A stroke is one of the leading causes of death in the United States and a leading cause of permanent disability. The stroke programs within Infirmary Health's Neuroscience Center of Excellence provide immediate emergency medical treatment to stroke victims to ensure they receive the treatment they need as soon as possible.

On the latest episode of LIFE Cast, Maggie Poole, RN and Stroke Coordinator for Infirmary Health, shares, "80% of strokes are preventable, and stroke is largely treatable. Understanding your risk factors, the warning signs, and how to respond during a stroke could save a life."
