Stroke Awareness Month
Carolyn Brockington, MD, director of the stroke center at Mount Sinai Roosevelt and Mount Sinai St. Luke, and stroke survivor, model and author Claudia Mason join Pei-Sze to talk about the symptoms of having a stroke in this Stroke Awareness Month. “A stroke is an injury to the brain and it’s caused by not enough blood getting to the brain. Sometimes the blood vessel can be blocked. Sometimes the blood vessel is narrowed. So over a period of time not enough blood gets to the brain and people develop symptoms,” says Dr. Brockington.
