National Stroke Week 2020

National Stroke Week 2020

This year National Stroke Week will be held from Monday 31 August to Sunday 6 September 2020.

The event will celebrate everyday Australians who know and can recognise the signs of stroke (our F.A.S.T. Heros!).

Across Australia, F.A.S.T. Heroes can save lives, by knowing and recognising the F.A.S.T. (Face, Arms, Speech, Time) signs of stroke and calling an ambulance immediately. They also know that stroke is always a medical emergency, and is time-critical.

The Stroke Foundation will be teaming up with Western Australia's Aboriginal Brain Injury Coordinators. They will be sharing F.A.S.T. posters and magnets and will be presenting and talking about the F.A.S.T. message. Click here to read the media release.
