Stroke Central will be raising awareness of Stroke, TIA's & the FAST Message. Stroke Awareness Week is in April 2018!
Stroke is the leading cause of disability in New Zealand.
Raising Awareness of Stroke, TIA's and the FAST Message can save lives.
It is important that people take the symptoms of stroke seriously and act fast.
TIA's (ministrokes) are smaller events that if left untreated can result in a full stroke.
The FAST Message is recognised internationally as an effective way to respond to the symptoms of a stroke.
Stroke Central produce resources and promotional items that help people to recognise these symptoms and react effectively to save time and reduce the effects of a stroke, which can result in disability for many.
