American Stroke Month 2021
American Stroke Month was created to promote public awareness and reduce the incidence of stroke in the United States. While many things have changed in the years for the better around stroke care since it started, no one at the time of its creation could foresee what we have gone through in the last year alone. There are so many things we want to share with you - as well as hear your stories, your praise for your teams, your amazing patient experiences - whatever you want to tell the world about stroke. Share your stories and images using the hashtag #RelentlessTogether on your favorite social media channel. We'd love to be included, so use @American_Heart to make sure we won't miss what you are sharing. Thank you for all your hard work, whether this is your first time observing American Stroke Month, or your thirty-second time. Keep fighting the good fight and let's make sure the next year is better for all patients who have suffered a stroke.
