About National Stroke Awareness Month
In 1989 National Stroke Association received the Presidential Proclamation recognizing May as National Stroke Awareness Month (view a copy of the proclamation). The goal of this annual campaign is to raise public awareness about stroke risk factors, prevention, symptom recognition and acting fast to treat stroke. In addition, this is a time for remembering those who have survived a stroke and to let them know that we are here for them throughout their lifelong recovery journey.
