World Stroke Day is recognized on October 29, 2019. This observance was created by the World Stroke Organization to bring awareness to the fact that strokes are preventable and to share information on how to prevent strokes. As nutrition professionals who often work with older adults, we can do our part in encouraging those around us to take action to help prevent strokes.
