    A Cure For Kyler - Pediatric Stroke Patient Story

    A Cure For Kyler - Pediatric Stroke Patient Story

    A large majority of stroke awareness, stories and advocacy is centered around older or aging populations. When we think about stroke, we envision an adult or a person with high risk factors, adult risk factors, such as smoking, drinking, high blood pressure, etc…. Though more common in adults, stroke is among the top 10 causes of death in pediatric patients.

    Kyler’s family have become advocates for pediatric stroke awareness. Telling and retelling their story through AVM Alliance, a Cure for Kyler and Friends, an organization they started to raise funds for AVM Foundation and the AVM Research Foundation in an effort to better the lives , support networks, and medical care of those affected by aneurysms and other types of vascular malformations of the brain.

    I spoke with Kyler’s mom, Raylene, about a year ago to learn about Kyler’s story and her presence, fierceness, and no-quit attitude has stuck with me ever since then. She is not only fighting for her own son, but so many more children , families, and caregivers living with the fallout of pediatric stroke. And she’s built quite an amazing community around it all.

    Learn more about Kyler and his journey, the AVM Alliance, A Cure for Kyler and Friends, visit https://www.facebook.com/AVMAlliance go to cureforkyler.com, avmalliance.com or search the hashtag #ACureForKyler

    A Discussion with Dr. Yejin Kim, PhD | Counterfactual analysis of differential comorbidity risk factors in Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias

    A Discussion with Dr. Yejin Kim, PhD | Counterfactual analysis of differential comorbidity risk factors in Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias

    In today’s episode, Dr. Seema Aggarwal sat down with Dr. Yejin Kim to discuss Dr. Kim, along with many other UTHealth Houston and Stroke Institute researchers, an article from March 2022,  a counterfactual analysis of differential comorbidity risk factors in Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias. Their analysis discovered different comorbidities that predispose older African Americans to AD compared to Caucasian counterparts. The findings from their study, which used data collected from nationwide electronic health records will assist in developing a targeted treatment for AD. Their discussion also provided great insight into the processes Kim and her team went through to complete their study and their hopes for applications in the future.
