Bradford Worrall, MD, the Harrison Distinguished Teaching Professor of Neurology and Public Health Sciences, discusses risk of stroke at middle age, especially for African American men, in a recent interview in UVA Today. In the Q&A, he shares what happens when a person has a stroke, why African Americans are more at risk, and his advice for prevention.

Dr. Worrall says, “Although we are incredibly lucky to live in an era when there are multiple ways in which we can try to reverse a stroke in the process, the greatest public health benefit comes from preventing the stroke from happening in the first place.”
