Call into talkback radio

Talkback radio is a great forum to start conversations about stroke and raise the profile of the fight stroke campaign.

Here’s what to do once you’ve called in:

  1. Tell them that stroke is one of Australia’s biggest killers and a leading cause of disability.
  2. Tell them how stroke has had an impact on your life.
  3. Mention the Fight Stroke – Call to Action. This was developed after the Stroke Foundation consulted with hundreds of stroke survivors. It contains what they feel needs to change in Australia for stroke survivors and carers.
  4. Talk about the National Action Plan for Stroke which outlines the steps Federal Government can take to prevent strokes and provide better care and support for stroke survivors. You can find more information about the plan here.
  5. Ask people to help by visiting www.fightstroke.com.au and joining the campaign.
