Stroke is the fifth leading cause of death and a leading cause of disability in the United States. Although improvements in care have resulted in a decreased rate of death among stroke patients, approximately 795,000 Americans experience a new or recurrent stroke each year. Approximately one quarter of those strokes are recurrent events. To address these issues, the Seventh Annual Stroke Symposium: Current Topics in Stroke Prevention will be held May 12 at UT Conference Center in Knoxville, Tennessee. Register now.
The course is designed for primary care physicians, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, nurses and other healthcare providers. It will include discussions on approaches to transitions of care and management of risk factors for atherosclerotic disease; reviews of cardiac implications for ischemic stroke and indications and adverse effects associated with anti-thrombotic medications; and an evaluation of the relationship between migraine and cerebrovascular disease.
The Seventh Annual Stroke Symposium: Current Topics in Stroke Prevention is presented by The University of Tennessee Medical Center Brain and Spine Institute andÂ the UT Graduate School of Medicine.
