WVU Medicine research and medical team present Silent Strokes: Risks and Research

Tues., March 21, 2017, 6 p.m., Fukushima Auditorium, WVU Health Sciences Center

Tuesday, March 7, 2017

People have strokes, sometimes without even knowing. These “silent strokes,” while often unnoticed, can cause permanent damage to the brain and increased risk of a more serious stroke in the future.

From bench to bedside, meet James Simpkins, Ph.D., and Muhammad Alvi, M.D., a West Virginia University School of Medicine research and medical team who are dedicating their efforts to stroke research and finding improved treatments.

Discover what they have learned about “silent strokes” and the research behind diagnosis and treatment at the next “Ask WVU Medicine” panel on Tues., March 21 at 6 p.m. in Fukushima Auditorium at the WVU Health Sciences Center.

The event is free and open to the public, and parking is readily available. A live stream link will provided  for those who are interested but can't make it: bit.ly/2mpTRAT.

Participants will learn what is happening in clinics here on the WVU Medicine campus as well as what is next on the horizon for treatment and research.
