'Yo, it’s a stroke rap, y'all'

You've seen one stroke awareness rap video - and now, another one is in the making from the University of Alabama:

The stroke rap was commissioned by Anne Alexandrov, Ph.D., professor in the School of Nursing and head of NET SMART, an educational program on acute stroke for nurses. Alexandrov wants the video to be entertaining, especially for the health care professionals who treat stroke every day, but she also wants it to be a clarion call for the important role of nurses in acute stroke management.

“I hope this video will capture the experience of providing acute stroke care from the time a patient enters the hospital all the way until they walk out the door to go home,” she says. “I believe it will touch the lives of those who see it not only from an entertainment standpoint, but also from an information standpoint.”

Here's to more education about stroke signs, and what to do when you see them.
