Know the Body Language of Stroke

This public service announcement aims to communicate the importance of recognizing the often subtle signs to help you know the body language of a stroke.  The PSA  shows that body language can communicate a wide range of emotions, but one of the most important things it can tell you is if someone might be having a stroke.

Stroke Warning Signs/Symptoms

The American Heart Association and American Stroke Association are encouraging Americans to use the F.A.S.T. :

F-Face drooping

A-Arm weakness

S-Speech difficulty

T-Time to call 9-1-1

This FAST acronym can explain and  communicate the warning signs/symptoms of a stroke to bystanders, and empower them to take action upon recognition.

The new PSAs urge viewers to learn the symptoms of a stroke.  Learn more about stroke and helpful recovery tips at
