We are excited to announce adoption of the Spanish stroke warning signs acronym R.á.p.i.d.o.
When it comes to spotting stroke and getting help, the faster, the better. That’s because prompt treatment may make the difference between life and death — a full recovery and long-term disability.
Two of the most significant barriers to health care access are language and health literacy. Stroke is one of the main killers of Hispanic-Latino adults, and by adopting a Spanish stroke warning signs acronym we aim to remove these barriers to help save lives and work toward health equity for all.
Use our downloadable R.á.p.i.d.o. resources to teach everyone about stroke warning signs in Spanish.
