Stroke Treatment and Research
A stroke occurs when blood flow to an area of the brain is blocked, depriving brain cells of the oxygen and glucose needed for survival.
Stroke is the fifth leading cause of death in America and a leading cause of adult disability. A stroke can affect how you move, think and feel. It can affect anyone at any time and recovery is a lifelong process.
Barrow is committed to providing excellent care, informing the community about prevention through control of risk factors, and finding new ways of treating and preventing stroke through research. Together, we will tackle the important issues which can make a difference for patient’s outcome today and tomorrow.
Please consider a gift today in support of stroke care and research at Barrow.
