Family Reunions are a wonderful way to stay connected, pass on family heritage and traditions and to learn and/or teach about family history. It is also a great time to inform some and remind others that stroke is a major health threat. Power To End Stroke is a source of empowerment for African Americans to take charge of their health to prevent stroke and recognize their increased risk of stroke.
The American Heart Association/American Stroke Association’s Power To End Stroke movement is empowering African Americans to reduce their risk by making healthy lifestyle changes. Families throughout America should incorporate Power To End Stroke into their family reunion. The American Stroke Association has the materials you need.
How to use this kit
We invite you to utilize the Power To End Stroke campaign materials to educate your family on the devastating effects for stroke on the community. Because African Americans are twice as likely to suffer a stroke as whites we’re providing targeted material to help you encourage family members to adopt a healthier lifestyle.
We can save lives through stroke education! Thank you for making a difference in your family and community.
