To get Flint Stroke Ready, we need your help!
Stroke is a leading cause of disability.
There is a clot-buster medicine called TPA to treat stroke -- but it can ONLY be given at the hospital!
TPA is underutilized throughout the U.S. However, it is especially underutilized in Flint where TPA treatment rates are half the national average!
What is Stroke Ready?
Stroke Ready is a free, community-based health promotion program that aims to educate and empower ALL members of the Flint community to:
Recognize signs of stroke, and
Call 911 and get to the hospital for medical treatment as soon as stroke symptoms start!
