Heart Beats

May is Stroke and Heart Awareness month. Today, in conjunction with the American Stroke and Heart Association, I hosted a breakfast for the members of the Texas Legislative Black Caucus and the Texas Senate Black Caucus. I wanted to provide a forum for my fellow colleagues to learn about the risk that African-Americans are at concerning Stroke and Heart Disease. African-Americans are twice as likely to be at risk for a stroke than other groups of Americans. If you would like to learn more about the "Power to End Stroke" campaign. Please call 888-4-STROKE or go to www.strokeassociation.org.
