Stroke is the most common cause of disability and the second most common cause of death worldwide, after ischemic heart disease. Although more common in the elderly, stroke also affects young adults and recent data suggest an increasing incidence of ischemic stroke and heart disease in young adults, with significant adverse socioeconomic consequences. Recent emphasis has been on partnering with cardiac ischemic heart disease and stroke due to similar risk factors and combining risk prevention activities.

The Marcus Neuroscience Institute Knock Out Stroke and Cardiac Events Virtual Symposium is designed to provide attendees with relevant information regarding new developments and approaches to the management of stroke and cardiac events. This symposium is designed to provide clinicians with in-depth reviews of the latest science and cutting-edge advances in the treatment of stroke mimics, change process to tenecteplase, atrial fibrillation and appendage closures among other topics. Please join us for this full-day symposium.
