Stroke is the fourth leading cause of death in the United States, claiming 150,000 lives and leaving 250,000 people handicapped each year. Since May is American Stroke Month, we've invited neurologist and stroke expert Robert Brown, Jr., M.D., and David Miller, M.D., to join us Saturday, May 17. What causes a stroke and what are the warning signs? If you think you're having a stroke, what should you do? What are the 10 things you can do to prevent a stroke? We hope you'll join us.

Also this week, Stephen Russell, M.D., Ph.D., will talk about this week's incredible announcement about using the measles virus to put a woman with an incurable cancer into remission.
