Tickets are not available as this event has passed.

Join the LGBT Elder Initiative and Jefferson Health for the kick-off of our new series on LGBT elder health! This month, we’ll be learning about strokes and reducing our risk of stroke.

Stroke is the fifth leading cause of death in the United States and the leading cause of serious long-term disability. Your risk of experiencing a stroke increases as you get older. Fortunately, 80% of strokes are preventable. Additionally, knowing the signs and symptoms of a stroke will help you to react quickly and get immediate medical help if you or someone you know might be having a stroke.
