According to the American Heart Association, about 795,000 people have a stroke every year, and about 140,000 people will die due to a stroke. Nearly 75 percent of strokes occur in individuals over 65. While stroke accounts for one of every 19 deaths in the United States, there are several behaviors that can reduce the risk of stroke.

Dr. Dahlberg earned her medical degree from the University of South Carolina School of Medicine in Columbia. She then completed her neurology residency at USC, where she also served as chief resident. Dr. Dahlberg is a member of the American Academy of Neurology with certifications in advanced cardiac and basic life support, as well as Allergan Botox® training. She provides comprehensive care for disorders of the nervous system at Southeastern Neurology & Memory Clinic.
