NOW AVAILABLE ONLINE

Join Stroke, a journal of the American Heart Association ǀ American Stroke Association, for a new webinar:

Infection and Stroke in Children
Heather Fullerton, MD, MAS, Presenter

Webinar #25 Registration Homepage
    

Highlights:   

Dr. Fullerton will discuss risk factors for childhood arterial ischemic stroke, particularly as they relate to both major infections, like meningitis, and minor infections, like the common cold. She will also discuss childhood cerebral arteriopathies, how they affect risk of recurrent stroke in children, and what is known about the role of infection in the development of these arteriopathies. Results will be presented from the recently completed NIH-funded prospective study, the Vascular effects of Infection in Pediatric Stroke (VIPS) study. 
  

Educational Objectives:

  1. To understand how infection can act as a trigger for childhood
    stroke.
  2. To know what specific pathogens have been linked to stroke in
    children.
  3. To understand the relationship between infection,
    arteriopathies, and risk of recurrent stroke.
