Abstract

Stroke is a leading cause of death and disability, but little is known about the public's knowledge base of associated risk factors and warning signs. We undertook a 6-month random telephone survey, which demonstrated significant gaps in public awareness. These deficits were most pronounced among persons older than 75 years and blacks, two groups at high risk for stroke. We concluded that more education is needed to inform the public about the risk factors and the warning signs of stroke.
