SAF advocated for a policy to redirect emergency medical transportation in Santa Clara County so that all stroke victims will be transported directly to a Certified Stroke Center. This ground-breaking legislation, unanimously approved by the Santa Clara Board of Supervisors, was the first of its kind in California.
SAF has reached over millions of people through our participation in local health fairs and health related events including two regional symposiums at Stanford University. The “Act FAST!” message has been reflected on VTA buses, informational sticky notes, banners, newspapers articles in English, Spanish and Vietnamese. SAF continues to facilitate media advertising for National Stroke Alert Day with more than a dozen county agencies. SAF has received significant attention from local and national media outlets, such as San Jose Magazine, San Jose Business Journal, The San Jose Mercury News, Silicon Valley News, CNN and The Wall Street Journal.
