2) Stroke Services Improvement
If you are late for a dinner meeting with your friends, you can just buy them a drink to feel better. However, what if it is too late to treat a stroke? Time is brain. If a stroke is detected and treated early, the chances and extent of recovery are greater.
Download these materials from Stroke Services Improvement and share them with your family and friends. You can also share them on your Facebook and Instagram posts and tag #TimingisEverything to raise awareness about the importance of detecting stroke fast.
