Raise stroke awareness through social media - Monthly Mission

By Tony Hart, Champion Specialist, @TonyHart87

Mayo Clinic Stroke Word Cloud

Stroke is the fifth-leading cause of death in the U.S., according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. It's also a leading cause of disability. But when treated soon after symptoms start, the effects of stroke often can be lessened or reversed. Prompt treatment is crucial because early action can minimize brain damage and potential complications. Then consider seeking specialty care to better understand the root cause of the stroke.

Monthly Mission

Help raise stroke awareness through sharing stroke facts, prevention tips and Mayo Clinic stroke expertise on your social media channels.
