World Stroke Day

It’s #WorldStrokeDay!

Recognize this important day with us by heading to your nearest social media account and share this image to teach your network how to recognize and react in a stroke emergency.

World Stroke Day was established by the World Stroke Organization in 2006 to help spread public awareness of the world's high stroke risk and stroke prevalence.

The American Heart Association/American Stroke Association supports the annual campaign by educating Americans about the stroke warning signs and the importance of taking action immediately. 

While stroke is the No. 4 cause of death and leading cause of disability in the U.S., many Americans do not think of stroke as a major health concern. 

We have made a lot of progress, but we still have a ways to go and need your help!

If you learn and share the F.A.S.T. stroke warning signs with your friends and family, you may save a life, possibly yours. Why? Because spotting the warning signs and calling 9-1-1 immediately can lead to quick stroke treatment and may even save a life.
