The Clinic and Polyclinic for Neurology of the University Hospital Leipzig (UKL) invited to an information event on October 29, 2019 on the occasion of the World Stroke Day. Project investigator of the project PostStroke-Manager and senior physician of the stroke unit Prof. Dominik Michalski informed about the main topics of pre- and aftercare. With the support of the German Stroke Assistance Foundation (Stiftung Deutsche Schlaganfall-Hilfe), an information stand was prepared for the prevention of the disease, where information was provided to the interested public by the stroke-pilots working in the project. This year’s motto “Every step counts” prompted the German Stroke Assistance Foundation to also provide pedagogic material in addition to information on the topics of exercise, high blood pressure, nutrition and smoking cessation. We thank all interested parties for participating in the event and the lively exchange.
