Einstein in the Media

The New York Times Well blog interviews Daniel Labovitz, M.D., regarding the apparent stroke a correspondent suffered on live television while reporting from the Grammy Awards. Due to her affected speech, Dr. Labovitz suspects that Los Angeles CBS reporter Serene Branson had a stroke or transient ischemic attack, which occurs when a blood clot blocks blood flow to part of the brain. The television station issued a statement that Ms. Branson was checked by a paramedic and sent home, which Dr. Labovitz asserted was exactly the wrong thing to do as her risk for stroke in the days following an event like this is extremely high. Dr. Labovitz is assistant professor in The Saul R. Korey Department of Neurology at Einstein and attending stroke neurologist at Montefiore Medical Center. (Wednesday, February 16, 2011)
