National Stroke Association and NBC present Brain Attack: A Stroke Survival Guide
National Stroke Association and NBC have partnered in the fight against stroke and are thrilled to announce an upcoming television special: Brain Attack: A Stroke Survival Guide.
This one-hour show will educate the public about stroke risk, stroke symptom recognition (F.A.S.T.) and recent breakthroughs in rehabilitation. The show will feature real-life stories from stroke survivors, including celebrities, as well as encourage viewer participation with an interactive Stroke Smart quiz.
Brain Attack: A Stroke Survival Guide will air on NBC network stations around the country starting April 14th,2007. This is a unique opportunity for stroke awareness and we are asking for your help to get the show aired and viewed in as many cities across the nation as possible. There are a number of ways to get involved:
Create a buzz! Call the general manager at your local NBC station today and tell them how important Brain Attack: A Stroke Survival Guide would be for your community. And then encourage your friends and family to do the same.
* Host a Super Stroke Smart party! Invite your friends, families and fellow stroke survivors to watch the show together in a fun atmosphere at your local hospital, community center, church, etc. Visit National Stroke Association's website over the next few weeks for party ideas.
* Play Along! The show will feature an interactive quiz. Create a fun competition amongst friends or coworkers and have small prizes available for the top Stroke Smart winners.
Again, this show is an incredible opportunity and we thank you for your continued support. Please contact us with any questions you may have about the show and/or how to help increase stroke awareness.
