“Brain Attack: Life After a Stroke”

“It can happen to anyone at any time at any age. Children can have strokes, elderly can have strokes — everyone can have them,” said Dr. Karen Gade-Pulido during the free lecture Luncheon “Brain Attack: Life After a Stroke,” held at Alliance Community Hospital on February 8, 2012.

She mentioned almost 800,000 Americans suffer from a stroke each year, an average of one stroke every 40 seconds. The impairments caused by a stroke can vary, depending on which part of the brain has been affected and what functions they are connected to.

Some examples include:

            • Balance
            • Speech and language
            • Hearing and vision
            • Memories and personality

Dr. Gade-Pulido’s main take away, when it comes to strokes, time is of the essence.
