Nothing is more important than a life. If you spot the warning signs of stroke, call 911 right away. Responding quickly can be the difference between recovery and disability, or even death. Luckily stroke is largely treatable when you know the signs and act fast. Learn more here

Heart disease remains a leading cause of death among women. Prevention and cure of heart disease, stroke and its risk factors can be attained through regular physical activity and nutrition. Learn about the American Heart Association and Macy’s #GoRedGetFit Facebook challenge at GoRedForWomen.org/GoRedGetFit as a tool to support women’s heart and brain health.

Do You Know What F.A.S.T. Stands For?

Stroke can’t wait and neither should you. Stroke is largely treatable, but responding quickly when a stroke occurs can mean the difference between recovery and disability. Our Together to End Stroke initiative, nationally sponsored by Medtronic, teaches the acronym F.A.S.T. to help people remember common stroke warning signs and what to do if you spot a stroke. F.A.S.T. stands for: (F)ace drooping, (A)rm weakness, (S)peech difficulty, (T)ime to call 9-1-1.
