Stroke is the fourth leading cause of death in the United States and the No. 1 cause of preventable disability. More than 100,000 African-Americans will suffer a new or reoccurring stroke this year, which is why participants of the Most Powerful Voices competition receive stroke information. The sooner fans vote, the sooner they can help close the gap on racial disparities through stroke awareness.
“Stroke is a leading cause of severe, long-term disability and death for all Americans, and African-Americans are at increased risk due to higher prevalence of risk factors such as high blood pressure, diabetes and previous heart attack and/or stroke,” said Dr. Rani Whitfield, a family practitioner in Baton Rouge, La., and an American Stroke Association spokesperson. “We need to reach as many people as possible to help them to reduce their risk and to know what to do in a stroke emergency to help improve stroke outcomes.”
Most Powerful Voices is an initiative of the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association’s Power To End Stroke cause campaign aimed at African-Americans, who are disproportionately affected by stroke. Power To End Stroke strives to close the stroke gap through culturally relevant events, tools and educational resources.
Contest participants must be 18 or older. The winner will be announced May 23. For more information, visit mostpowerfulvoices.org.
