WARNS: Low stroke awareness puts women at risk of cutting their lives short

TORONTO, May 31, 2011 /CNW/ - The following video is available by satellite or by CNW's Video On-Demand web download:

STORY SUMMARY:

Foundation polling looks at women and reveals that low awareness leaves them even more vulnerable - particularly women from our two largest visible minorities. Are women aware that stroke is an equal opportunity killer? Do they have the know-how to recognize a stroke and how to react? And do they know they have the power to prevent 80 per cent of strokes?

The Heart and Stroke Foundation takes a look at awareness levels, what we can do to turn the tide on stroke - and gives Canadians new tools to take control, to prevent stroke, and gain quality years of life.

The Heart and Stroke Foundation is launching two new stroke prevention apps to help Canadians reduce their risk
