World Stroke Day
Covidien has joined with the World Stroke Organization and other organizations around the globe to recognize World Stroke Day on October 29. Through our Take 2…Tell 2 campaign, we are helping raise awareness about the signs and symptoms of stroke and what to do if they occur. We’re encouraging everyone to take two minutes to learn about the signs and symptoms of stroke, to share that knowledge with two other people and then tell their stroke story through social media using the hashtag #Take2forStroke.
