In observance of National Stroke Awareness Month, NINDS, Million Hearts, American Academy of Neurology (AAN), and the American Stroke Association are co-hosting a Twitter chat to discuss stroke risk factors, the importance of keeping your brain healthy, and the latest stroke research. #BrainforLife will take place Wednesday, May 2, from 1-2 p.m. ET.  Medical experts, including NINDS Director Dr. Walter Koroshetz and AAN President Dr. Ralph L. Sacco, will be on hand to answer questions.
