This inaugural awards breakfast is an opportunity to connect with stroke survivors, caregivers, physicians, friends and family.
Stroke knows no boundaries - every 2 seconds someone in the world has a stroke. Globally someone dies of this leading cause of disability every 5 seconds, ending 6.4 million lives each year. 80% of strokes are preventable, many Americans cannot identify the stroke warning signs, and most stroke survivors and family caregivers do not know where to go for stroke recovery information. This presents a great opportunity to work together to teach Americans how to prevent a stroke, as well as how to recognize, respond to, and recover from a stroke.
