795-thousand people in the United States will experience a stroke this year. Not all the victims are part of the Social Security set. Researchers have noticed a startling increase in the rate of strokes among younger people in their mid-thirties through mid-forties.  Strokes can affect people of all ages, even teenagers and kids.

Host Jonathan Fialkow. M.D. and his guest, neurologist Felipe De Los Rios, M.D., medical director of the stroke program at Miami Neuroscience Center, explore this troubling trend, talk about symptoms and risk factors, and look into whether there is any connection to the novel Coronavirus, on this episode of Baptist HealthTalk.
