Cerebrovascular Disease and Stroke Program

Cerebrovascular diseases are disorders of blood vessels and brain arteries that supply blood to the brain. Cerebrovascular diseases can cause common conditions, such as aneurysms, dementia, and strokes, affecting more than 62 million people in the United States.

This website provides information about prevention, recognizing the warning signs of a stroke, and the Cerebrovascular Disease and Stroke Program's methods to diagnose and treat cerebrovascular diseases. We suggest the following links to get you started:
