Stroke Prevention Awareness. The Texas Medical Association recognizes that increasing public awareness of the early signs and symptoms of a stroke (“brain attack”) is essential to prevention of death and disability from stroke. Early recognition of the warning signs of stroke and immediate emergency medical attention can prevent death and reduce disability from stroke. TMA endorses coordinated state level data collection and surveillance to improve prevention and care for stroke “brain attack” and myocardial infarction “heart attack” (Medical Student Section, p 188, A-96; reaffirmed CSA Rep. 4-A-07; amended CSPH Rep. 3-A-17).
