National Stroke Awareness Month Resources From VDM

In 1989, the month of May was designated National Stroke Awareness Month in the United States by presidential proclamation. Since that time, awareness campaigns have helped to educate the public about stroke risk, research, and treatment. In honor of National Stroke Awareness Month, VDM highlights recent articles, blog posts, news, and events to enhance your practice and help you prevent and treat stroke.
