Silent and deadly, yet preventable!

Early in November, Dr. Haitham Hussein had the opportunity to present about stroke prevention, disparities, and its links to COVID-19 in his talk, “Silent and deadly, yet preventable!”. 

Haitham Hussein, MD, is an Associate Professor in the Vascular Division of the Neurology Department at the University of Minnesota Medical School. Dr. Hussein shared his knowledge of stroke while discussing prevention and the relationship that it has with COVID-19 from a perspective that focused on culture, community, and gender disparity. He additionally talked about his educational work with community and national organizations. 

This presentation was given as part of the 10,000 Families Study (10KFS) “Conversations about health”. The 10KFS at the University of Minnesota is a research study of family health in Minnesota. The studies conducted through this organization focus on understanding and informing people about the role genetics, lifestyle, and environment have on health. This interview was conducted by journalist Victor Ayara.
