My compliments to Neurology Now for the well-done article (May/June 2008) on the new Give Me 5 for Stroke campaign sponsored by the American Academy of Neurology, American Stroke Association, and the American College of Emergency Physicians. All three organizations are very pleased with the tremendous response to this effort to build awareness of the signs of a stroke and the need to call 9-1-1 immediately if you or someone close to you experiences one of these symptoms.
Unfortunately, the Web site for the campaign was accidentally omitted from the article. We urge the public and stroke professionals to go to www.giveme5forstroke.org for additional information on this campaign.
