World Stroke Day 'What can I do?'


The theme for the World Stroke Day 2009 is "Stroke, what can I do?"

This question implies that everyone can do something about stroke. Individuals can learn their risk for stroke and do something about it, they can learn the symptoms of stroke and what to do about them, and they can help advance the stroke cause in many other roles: as a physician, a nurse, a healthcare professional, a patient, a caregiver, a donor, a business person, a citizen, a member of a voluntary organization, a policymaker, a member of government etc. The theme has been developed to prompt individuals, groups and governments to take action against stroke either at a personal, or group level.

This year we are encouraging people all over the world to run World Stroke Day events. The WSO will be delivering tools to support this activity including lists of ideas for activities and media releases. The WSO will also be providing an award to the best, most innovative, and most powerful activities in different regions to recognize efforts that heighten stroke awareness
