American Stroke Month 2016
Messaging and Campaign Activation Toolkit- Healthcare Professionals
Thank you for supporting American Stroke Month in May. As a healthcare professional, you are the health influencers who make close connections with your community. You build relationships and promote lifestyle changes. You are stroke heroes and we need you to help us teach America that:
Most strokes are preventable.
- 80% of strokes are preventable.
- What’s good for your heart is good for your brain.
Stroke is largely treatable.
- The faster you are treated, the more likely you are to recover without permanent disability.
- Most patients must be evaluated and treated within 3 to 4.5 hours of symptom onset.
The American Heart Association/American Stroke Association humbly ask that you share the resources within this toolkit in your patient and staff networks in effort to support our mission building healthier lives, free of cardiovascular diseases and stroke. Together, we can end stroke!
Even MORE tools available at www.strokeassociation.org/strokehero and www.strokeassociation.org/resources. And check back on May 16 for the Acute Ischemic Stroke Toolkit especially for health care professionals!
