Stroke Awareness Month

May is American Stroke Awareness Month. And the message from the medical community - despite the coronavirus crisis - is simple: don’t be afraid to go to the hospital if you’re experiencing the warning signs of a heart attack or stroke. Dr. Chris Fox, Senior Associate Consultant in Neurosurgery at the Mayo Clinic, joined us to explain why.

Nemours Orthopedic Clinic

Even though hospital systems are encouraging patients to show up, parents are still understandably reluctant to bring in their kids for treatment if they can put off a visit. And Nemours Children’s is mindful of that, so they’ve set up a separate clinic during the pandemic, for children with orthopedic injuries. Dr. Eric Loveless, Head of Orthopedics at Nemours in Jacksonville, joined us with more.
