Georgia is in a geographic region called the “stroke belt,” based on high rates of death from stroke. Much like a heart attack, a stroke is a “brain attack!” This can happen to anyone at any given time. When strokes occur, the blood flow is cut off from the brain.

African-Americans are twice as likely to die from stroke as Caucasians, with high blood pressure and obesity being contributing factors. Strokes in African-Americans tend to occur earlier in life. And as survivors, African-Americans are more likely to become disabled and experience difficulties with daily living and activities. Come learn about the different types of strokes and what you can do to prevent them!
