Many people do not know that stroke is the 4th leading cause of death and the #1 cause of disability in the United States! Statistics have shown minorities are twice as likely to pass away from a stroke. Dr. Demetrius Lopes and his team established the Cure4Stroke Foundation to provide cutting-edge research, training, and education in the fight to prevent and treat stroke. We are excited for your support and the opportunity to discuss our training, research, and the educational impact our organization has on stoke prevention. We want to show our appreciation with a Stroke Survivor Celebration!
