  • National Stroke Awareness Month: Are you StreetSmart about Stroke?

    100K views 3 months ago
    According to research, less than one third of people can recognize more than one stroke symptom. So we took our cameras to the streets of Denver to find out just how much the public does know about stroke.

    Learn FAST: the vital signs and symptoms of stroke. Identify the droop in one's face and arms, slurred speech, and that time is of the essence when having a stroke.

    Not just older individuals have strokes. Stroke can occur at any age, and is largely preventable. Learn about lifestyle choices and medical conditions that contribute to the likelihood of having a stroke.

    Spread the word about stroke! Be aware and share information about stroke that saves lives:
