Stroke hits African-Americans more often than any other community of people in the world killing thousands annually and leaving countless others incapacitated. To make matters worse, many African-Americans don't have access to quality medical care or even reliable information about stroke. Here is the first guide written by and for African-Americans that provides important information on why Blacks are at greater risk of stroke, how to assess one's odds of suffering a stroke, and what to do to avoid or survive it. Includes an extensive resource section.
