May Is National Stroke Awareness Month

05-09-2013
Learn the signs & symptoms of a stroke – so you can help yourself or a loved one.
Stroke is the fourth leading cause of death and a leading cause of disability in the U.S. However, less than one third of people in the U.S. can recognize more than one stroke warning sign. By 2030, it is estimated that 4 million people will have had a stroke. Teaching more people to recognize the signs and symptoms of a stroke is more urgent than ever. In honor of National Stroke Awareness Month, help us reach as many people as possible with this life-saving information.

It's estimated that stroke will have a greater impact in the coming years. Be aware and share life-saving information about stroke – tap into the Stroke Awareness Resource Center's EKit for e-cards, fact sheets, web graphics, social media posts, paycheck and bag stuffers, and more.
