**May Is National Stroke Awareness Month***
New Educational Campaign
Learn The ‘Fibs or Facts’ About the Risk of stroke…and much more
AN EDUCATIONAL CAMPAIGN AIMS TO RAISE AWARENESS ABOUT ATRIAL FIBRILLATION (AFIB), A TYPE OF IRREGULAR HEARTBEAT NOT CAUSED BY A HEART VALVE PROBLEM, AND ITS ASSOCIATED INCREASED RISK OF STROKE
An educational campaign called “Fibs or Facts” is designed to raise awareness about AFib not caused by a heart valve problem and its associated increased risk of stroke. AFib affects approximately 5.8 million people in the U.S., and this condition puts people at a five times greater risk of stroke than those without it.
The “Fibs or Facts” campaign website www.FibsOrFacts.com features an educational quiz to test people’s knowledge of the fibs and the facts of AFib and its associated increased risk for stroke. For each person who completes the “Fibs or Facts” quiz, Bristol-Myers Squibb and Pfizer will donate $1 to National Stroke Association, up to $35,000.
Dr. James A. Reiffel, a Professor of Clinical Medicine from Columbia University College of Physicians & Surgeons, shares with our Life Lessons audience the importance of understanding the condition and its associated increased risk of stroke, and of discussing treatment options with your doctor to help reduce the risk of stroke.
