Q. I hear a lot about knowing the signs of stroke. I'm young - Is it really important to me?
A. A Stroke can happen to anyone at anytime, regardless of race, gender or age, so we all should be aware of the risks, symptoms and prevention.
Some risks for stroke may be out of your control. Risks that you cannot change include being over age 55, male, African-American, having a family history, or a medical condition such as diabetes.
