Health and Wellness is a series of talks by medical specialists to help alumni better understand common medical conditions. Unravel medical jargon and debunk myths behind seemingly complicated diseases at these talks.
This session is organised in partnership with Farrer Park Hospital (FPH).
Stroke, the fourth leading cause of death in Singapore, is a devastating and life-changing event that is also one of the top contributors of adult disability. With an increasingly ageing population, the danger and burden that strokes pose will continue to rise. Join Dr Chou in this illuminating talk on the different types of strokes, risk factors and ways to prevent them.
