Cerebrovascular accident (CVA), or stroke, is the third leading cause of death (behind heart disease and cancer) in the United States. Those who survive a stroke can be left with devastating side effects such as paralysis, speech and memory impairment, as well as vision problems.

The program also includes an anatomy refresher, discusses warning signs of stroke, and control of risk factors.
