dc.description.abstractStrokes are the fifth leading cause of death in the United States, killing on average 800,000 Americans annually.^29 An overview of the three main components of the cardiovascular system (the heart, the blood, and the blood components) will be established with an in-­‐depth look at the cerebral vasculature to explain the physiological mechanism of a stroke. There are two main categories of stroke, both with distinct causes and treatments, although they both occur without prior warning. A summary of the causes, treatment, and prevention methods are listed for both types of strokes, with some overlap between the two. Finally, a community outreach portion is included, comprised of a lesson plan to teach elementary students about strokes and explaining why it is important to teach young children about science in general.
