Children's Medical Center Initiates Study to Diagnose and Treat Pediatric Strokes
Children's Medical Center Dallas
Children's Medical Center Dallas (Children's) is
launching a critical stroke initiative to diagnose and treat strokes in
children. Pediatric strokes is a little-known condition that occurs as often as
leukemia and brain tumors but often is not recognized by parents or physicians,
despite the serious short- and long-term health consequences. As part of this
effort, Children's will be one of four research sites in North America
participating in this groundbreaking research.
National Stroke Association’s mission is to reduce the incidence and impact of stroke by developing compelling education and programs focused on prevention, treatment, rehabilitation and support for all impacted by stroke.
