Pop Music’s Michelle Williams, American Heart Association and More Band Together to Broaden Stroke Awareness
Date:5/27/2016

This campaign aims to provide a path to improved education and awareness surrounding the factors of a stroke, which we as a society can control and change.

As nearly 795,000 Americans suffering from a new or recurrent stoke each year, a stroke occurs nearly every 40 seconds within the United States. Plus, with an estimated 129,000 of these people dying from stroke, it’s become our nation’s fifth-leading cause of death. In light of these staggering numbers, it is important for Americans to understand not only the warning signs of a stroke, but the recovery process and, perhaps most importantly, how to prevent strokes.

The print component of “Stroke Awareness” is distributed within today’s edition of USA Today in New York, Los Angeles, Washington D.C/Baltimore and North Central Florida, with a circulation of approximately 250,000 copies and an estimated readership of 750,000. The digital component is distributed nationally, through a vast social media strategy, and across a network of top news sites and partner outlets.

Gracing the cover of the print publication is R&B singer Michelle Williams, of Destiny’s Child fame. Through and exclusive interview on the interior, she sheds light on the importance of stroke education and the impact that knowledge can have on the life of every student. “I hope the future of stroke awareness continues to reveal the dangers, how important it is to recognize symptoms of stroke, and how to react quickly,” Williams says. “People think all strokes do one thing. There are many types and levels of stroke.”

This campaign was made possible with the support of the American Heart Association (ASA), National Stroke Association (NSA), National Aphasia Association (NAA), International Alliance for Pediatric Stroke (IAPS), American Academy of Neurology (AAN), Michelle Williams, Baptist Health, Ekso Bionics, Merz North America, Bioness, Lingraphica and Medtronic.
