AGA Medical Corporation Launches Second Web-Based Stroke Education and Awareness Video Featuring Professional Football Player Tedy Bruschi
Date:2/26/2009

MINNEAPOLIS, Feb. 26 /PRNewswire/ -- AGA Medical Corporation today launched the second in a series of web-based stroke education and awareness videos featuring Tedy Bruschi, a professional football player who suffered a stroke in February 2005, subsequently recovered and returned to his career. The new video features Tedy describing his personal experience while suffering a stroke. The video is a continuation of Tedy's story that began with the first video in the series, posted in late January. It will be followed by additional videos posted monthly on the AGA Medical website that describe Tedy's firsthand experience as a stroke victim, survivor and prevention champion.

"I hope that by sharing my experiences through the video series people will come to understand the important risk factors for stroke, learn to quickly identify the warning signs and be better prepared should they themselves or a loved one, colleague or neighbor experience a stroke," said Tedy Bruschi. "I know firsthand the emotional and physical challenges that experiencing a stroke can lead to. My hope is that the content of the program developed with AGA Medical may help other stroke survivors achieve a positive recovery. That is why this effort is so important to me."

AGA Medical announced its partnership with Tedy Bruschi in December 2008 with the release of a video in which Tedy describes the warning signs of stroke. In January, the national stroke awareness program's next initiative - a series of five inspirational videos of Tedy discussing his personal experience with stroke and educating others about warning signs - kicked off with the release of a video describing Tedy's life prior to his stroke. Each month though May, AGA Medical Corporation and Tedy will team up to release a new video. Visitors to the www.amplatzer.com/strokeawareness website will be able to
