National Stroke Awareness Month
The National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS) sponsors National Stroke Awareness Month in May to help people learn about risk factors for stroke. Spread the word about stroke prevention using the materials in CDC’s Stroke Communications Kit. You can also check out the Healthy People 2030 Heart Disease and Stroke objectives to learn about national targets for improving heart health. And be sure to share our MyHealthfinder resource on how to lower the risk of stroke.
