May is Stroke Awareness Month, and we want to talk to you! Every 40 seconds, someone has a stroke. One out of six people will suffer a stroke in their lifetime. Still, the vast majority of Americans do not think of stroke as a major health concern. The American Heart Association/American Stroke Association is working hard each and every day to address those statistics through education, research and advocacy.
Join us, Thursday, May 19 at 12:00 p.m. as we recognize Stroke Awareness Month during a 30-minute Advocacy Chat with Wyomingites, discussing the disease that claims the lives and independence of nearly 800,000 people each year.
We’ll talk about stroke risk, the signs and symptoms and how to take appropriate measures. We will also talk about the grassroots opportunities available to our advocates to get involved with stroke-related policy change in Wyoming.
Join the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association and folks from across the state of Wyoming in an effort to raise awareness and make an impact on the health of our great state! Please RSVP for this Advocacy Chat by CLICKING HERE.
