AAAC, DPH and Stroke Association
Ban Together to Block Stroke

While stroke is a serious health concern for many people, it disproportionately affects African-Americans. Thatís why the African-American Affairs Commission (AAAC) has teamed up with the Connecticut Department of Public Health (DPH) and the American Stroke Association to increase awareness of stroke as a medical condition and how to prevent it.
The partnershipís first public information campaign was launched in May and will continue through June 2006. Currently four African-American interest newspapers are running stroke prevention advertisements. Sixteen radio stations are broadcasting public service announcements voiced by Channel 8ís Keith Kountz. Additional public outreach, education and information efforts are in the process of being planned. more
