National Stroke Association
February 3, 2011
I worked with this organization to provide a statewide stroke awareness program during the baseball season in 2010. We collaborated with the Heart and Stroke prevention team in our state. We attended 4 minor league baseball games at each of our minor league teams. We provided educational information, video PSA, 1:1 interactions with professionals across the state providing a free blood pressure reading and stroke prevention information. In all of my interactions with this organization I felt there was a personal and professional commitment on behalf of the staff. They had statewide partnerships willing to stand in the hot sun and interact with attendees at the game. They are very professional in their interactions and committed to their mission.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
The above mentioned awareness campaign and at other health fairs across the state. We identified over 100 people with risk factors at one game.
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
Make sure they had more funding.
