Celebrating a Year Without a Stroke: Dr. Roosevelt Gilliam

Published March 9, 2018

Dr. Gilliam is a cardiac electrophysiologist at UNC Center for Heart and Vascular Care. After decades of treating AFib patients, especially those with diabetes, he knows that AFib patients needs to be ever-vigilant about a problem that is silent and sneaky. He knows that prevention is the whole ballgame because once you have a stroke you can’t undo it.
