Madison and Huntsville are located in the center of what doctors call the "Stroke Belt." This includes most of the Southeast, and people raised in this area have a much higher risk of stroke than anywhere else in the country. Because area residents are more likely to have a stroke, it is important for everyone to recognize stroke symptoms in themselves or a loved one. When it comes to stroke, seconds count! Thirty-two thousand brain cells die every second a stroke goes untreated. Fast, effective treatment is crucial to get the best possible outcome for a patient experiencing a stroke.
