Young People and Strokes: A Troubling Trend

In the U.S., 795,000 people will experience a stroke this year. Not all the victims are part of the Social Security set. Researchers have noticed a startling increase in the rate of strokes among younger people in their mid-30s through mid-40s.  Strokes can affect people of all ages, even teenagers and kids.

Host Jonathan Fialkow. M.D [1]. and his guest, neurologist Felipe De Los Rios, M.D. [2], medical director of the stroke program at Miami Neuroscience Center [3], explore this troubling trend, talk about symptoms and risk factors, and look into whether there is any connection to the novel Coronavirus, on this episode of Baptist HealthTalk.
