This public service announcement aims to communicate the importance of recognizing the often subtle signs of a stroke. The PSAs show that body language can communicate a wide range of emotions, but one of the most important things it can tell you is if someone might be having a stroke. The American Heart Association and American Stroke Association are encouraging Americans to use the F.A.S.T. (F-Face drooping; A-Arm weakness; S-Speech difficulty; T-Time to call 9-1-1) acronym to communicate the warning signs/symptoms of a stroke to bystanders, and empower them to take action upon recognition. The new PSAs urge viewers to learn the symptoms of a stroke at StrokeAssociation.org.
