Infirmary Health Stroke Education Coloring Contest

Infirmary Health Stroke Education Coloring Contest

Someone has a stroke every 40 seconds in the U.S. But, 80% of strokes are preventable, and stroke is largely treatable. Knowing your risk factors, the warning signs, and how to respond during a stroke could save a life.

"The patient does not often call 911 for stroke," says Maggie Poole, stroke coordinator for Infirmary Health. "In some cases, they are made by a child or family member. That's why it's important to teach kids the signs because they can save a life."

In observance of National Stroke Awareness Month, Infirmary Health is helping spread awareness of the signs and symptoms of a stroke. B.E.F.A.S.T. is an easy acronym that everyone should remember to help save a life. Kids age 12 and under are invited to participate in our Stroke Education Coloring Contest to enter their coloring sheets from our B.E.F.A.S.T Educational Coloring Book ( to be displayed in the Neuro Intensive Care Units at Mobile Infirmary.
