Malaysia - Stroke Awareness Talk: 'Strike the iron while it's hot'

24.10.2018 - Hospital Rehabilitasi Cheras (Cheras Rehabilitation Hospital)

As the saying goes,' strike the iron while it is hot'. That was exactly what we did when a stroke awareness talk was given to almost 1000 pupils from 7 to 12 years old in one of elite primary school in Kuala Lumpur, Sekolah Kebangsaan Sri Bintang Utara. Interactive approach was taken to instil the early signs and symptoms of stroke with FAST concept, types of stroke as well as stroke prevention. Interesting responses and reactions from the pupils proved that it was an indeed fun learning opportunity. The hazards of smoking which is a risk factor for stroke was explained to students. These proactive students can assume the role of agents of change to improve stroke awareness to friends and family members. Start stroke awareness young and we can together make a difference.
