According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, strokes kill approximately 140,000 Americans annually - the equivalent of 1 out of every 20 deaths. As part of the Weill Cornell Medicine Wellness Series, join us for this talk exploring modifiable risk factors, signs, symptoms and the latest treatments available.

Babak Navi, an expert concerning the relationship between cancer and strokes, led the first randomized trial to compare different blood-thinning strategies for patients affected by these conditions. Dr. Navi's investigative background also includes research studies concerning strokes of undetermined cause, strokes during pregnancy, cerebrovascular presentations of dizziness and physicians’ ability to prognosticate severe brain injury.
