Do you like talking to people or speaking in front of groups? If the answer is “yes”, then hosting a community presentation is a great way to spread stroke awareness. We have created four different ready-to-use presentations to meet your needs. Check our tips to get started.
Nearly 800,000 people in the U.S. experience a stroke each year, and someone dies from stroke every four minutes. Knowing the signs of stroke, how to prevent it, and how to help others around you, just might save a life. Please join us in raising awareness this month.
