May is American Stroke Month!
The American Stroke Association is excited to kick-off this year’s American Stroke Month campaign. This year’s campaign aims to improve health and wellbeing in our communities – to help advance our 2020 Health Impact Goal of reducing stroke mortality by 20% by 2020 by elevating awareness of F.A.S.T. and knowledge that stroke is largely treatable and educating stroke survivors, family caregivers and others about secondary stroke prevention.
