Book a FREE health talk for your community group!
More than 56,000 strokes will be experienced by Australians this year – that is one stroke every nine minutes*. But the good news is that it doesn’t need to be this way. Up to 80 percent of strokes are preventable.
Stroke Foundation’s volunteer speakers are trained in public speaking and experienced in delivering life-saving messages about stroke. Many of our volunteer speakers have either had a stroke themselves or are close to someone who has. While they will present common information about stroke and its prevention, they will also draw on their own personal experiences so every talk is different – and very powerful.
Your group will learn:
> What stroke is and how to recognise the signs of stroke.
> What to do if someone is having a stroke.
> How to prevent stroke in you or the people you love.
Stroke Foundation is a not-for-profit organisation. Despite more than 475,000 people living with stroke and a stroke occurring every 9 minutes, we receive very little government funding.
Is there a cost?
Talks are offered free to community groups thanks to the generous support of individuals and groups who have made donations to help us cover costs. Your donation is most welcome.
