This free, confidential stroke risk assessment will take about seven minutes to complete and will provide you with a personalized health report that will help you:

  • Learn about your current stroke health risk

F.A.S.T.

F.A.S.T. is an easy way to remember the signs of a stroke. When you see these signs, you will know that you need to call 911 fast. F.A.S.T. stands for:

F is for face drooping. One side of the face is drooping or numb. When the person smiles, the smile is uneven.

A is for arm weakness. One arm is weak or numb. When the person lifts both arms at the same time, one arm may drift downward.

S is for speech difficulty. You may notice slurred speech or difficulty speaking. The person can't repeat a simple sentence correctly when asked.

T is for time to dial 911. If someone shows any of these symptoms, even if they go away, call 911 right away. Make note of the time the symptoms first appeared.
