Answer

Public education must involve all age groups. Incorporating stroke into basic life support (BLS) and cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) curricula is just one way to reach a younger audience. Avenues to reach an audience with a higher stroke risk could include local churches, employers, and senior organizations to promote stroke awareness.
