What does it mean to Act FAST? In the stroke community, it means recognizing the signs of stroke (Facial Drooping, Arm Weakness and Slurred Speech) and acting on them in a timely fashion by calling 911. In our daily lives, however, we can Act FAST by raising awareness of stroke's warning signs throughout our communities and across the state. Enter the Act FAST Running Team!
