May is American Stroke Month, which is the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association’s annual campaign to increase stroke awareness and to educate Americans that stroke is largely preventable, treatable and beatable.
At MUSC, we are working hard to end stroke and are excited to offer a free community stroke awareness health fair on Thursday, May 22, from 10 am to 2 pm at the MUSC Horseshoe, located at 165 Ashley Ave.
