American Heart Association/American Stroke Association Boosts Stroke Knowledge with Music

The F.A.S.T song
Tha Hip Hop Doc Rani Whitfield, M.D., and Music Artist Dee-1 Team up to Help People Recall Stroke Warning Signs with a New Song

Stroke is the world's second-leading cause of death and an often devastating, yet largely treatable disease. In the U.S. stroke is a leading cause of long-term disability and the No. 5 cause of death.

Recognizing a stroke right away and calling 9-1-1 can save lives, but many people do not know the warning signs of stroke and may miss the narrow treatment window. The American Heart Association/American Stroke Association is asking people to share the F.A.S.T. song to help people to remember the most common.
