Scripps Physician Discusses Local Teen’s Stroke on KUSI News
Eighteen-year-old Claire Cordua had just graduated from Westview High School in Rancho Penasquitos. She was spending a leisurely summer hanging out with friends, tutoring, babysitting and getting ready to head off to college.
All that changed on July 17, when Claire suffered a massive stroke. Her life was saved twice that day – once by her quick-thinking boyfriend and, then again, by Giuseppe Ammirati, a new physician who had yet to officially start work at Scripps Memorial Hospital La Jolla.
