AFib: When Stroke Strikes
Tuesday, May 3, 2011 from 1:00 PM to 2:00 PM (EDT)
In honor of National Stroke Awareness Month, please join Team AFib for our inaugural webinar “AFib: When Stroke Strikes” taking place at 1 p.m. EST on Tuesday, May 3. During the live webinar, expert panelists will explain how to recognize and respond quickly to stroke signs and symptoms to help improve outcomes for people who experience AFib-related stroke. They will also provide information to help AFib patients and their care supporters better understand the link between AFib and stroke.
There are steps people with AFib can take to help reduce their stroke risk, but in the instance an AFib-related stroke strikes, are you prepared? Do you know the signs and symptoms of stroke? Could you react quickly and take the necessary steps to help achieve better outcomes? Panelists will provide answers to these and other questions during the webinar.
“AFib: When Stroke Strikes” will be hosted by National Stroke Association on behalf of Team AFib, a newly-formed coalition of organizations that advocates for patients – specifically those who have atrial fibrillation or AFib, a form of heart arrhythmia that can lead to stroke. Panelists include:
Moderator: Jim Baranski, CEO, National Stroke Association
Panelist: David Willis, M.D.
Panelist: Diana, AFib advocate
