Recognize World Stroke Day...Because You Care

 

Stroke is the No. 2 cause of death worldwide and the No. 4 cause of death in the U.S.  Yet studies show that Americans do not rank stroke as a leading health concern.  On World Stroke Day, October 29, help us raise awareness that stroke is largely preventable, treatable and beatable! 

When someone is having a stroke, they need immediate treatment to save their life and improve their chances of recovery. But the very first step is recognizing that someone is having a stroke. The simple acronym F.A.S.T. helps you remember the most common signs and symptoms of a stroke:

F: Face Drooping

A: Arm Weakness

S: Speech Difficulty

T: Time to Call 911 

Please reach out to your colleagues, family and friends and educate them about stroke and F.A.S.T. - with your help, together we can end stroke!
