Utica, NY (WIBX) - More than one million people suffer from Pseudobulbar Affect, a neurological post-stroke disorder. But, Faxton Saint Luke’s Healthcare is offering an opportunity for others to learn how to identify it.

On November 14th, in the Sogg’s Room at the Saint Luke’s Home, healthcare professionals will meet to discuss the disorder, why it occurs and how to treat it.

Stroke victims with PBA will suddenly and unpredictably begin laughing, crying or displaying some other emotion. In some cases, it is misdiagnosed as depression and treated incorrectly.

FSLH’s medical director for the Stroke Center, Scott Brehaut, will also address recovery and rehabilitation methods.

The event is free to attend, though space is limited and registration is required.
