CHALLENGE

Stroke is the fourth-leading cause of death in the U.S. and the leading cause of adult disability in the United States. Each year, close to 800,000 people in the United States have a stroke. Stroke costs the nation $34 billion, including the cost of health care services, medications, and lost productivity. With timely treatment, the risk of death and disability from stroke can be lowered.
