Because stroke victims rarely call 911, the only way to have them reach the emergency room quickly is to educate the ENTIRE population about the warning symptoms of stroke and the need to call 911.
Stroke Alert is a grassroots initiative by health care providers to work with local media and local organizations to reach out to the whole population of a community on one single day. The goal is to educate everyone with regard to the warning signs of stroke and the need to call 911 immediately. You are welcome to join! There are no fees. Our graphics and educational materials are available in many languages for free. Use them as you wish, you can even put your own logo on them. Explore the site, come frequently because it is maturing and growing rapidly.
We encourage you to register (also free) so that other partners can find you. The primary contact person for each registering partner also will be able to list your own events for the public to see (along with a link to your website) and will be able to upload educational tools or graphics that you have found useful; it is also possible to share links to other non-commercial sites. This event is about sharing and cooperating! Together we can make a difference.
You can still order graphics directly from M&M Printing with tremendous savings due to our bulk rates. They can mail the materials to you directly. See the information 'Buy Printed Materials' in Downloads (must be logged in to view).
We are always looking to provide our materials in more languages but we need more translators. Anyone who can translate the English Short Handbill or Long Handbill versions should just contact us directly.
