The American Heart Association (AHA) wants you to learn how to prevent heart disease and stroke as they celebrate Stroke Month. AHA says that heart disease and stroke are the #1 and #5 killers in Baton Rouge.
May is American Stroke Month. According to AHA, almost half of all Americans cannot name one symptom of a stroke.
This weekend AHA will participate in the annual Walk the Rowe for Heart event with interactive stations around Perkins Rowe to teach people about heart disease and stroke.
