You would  be very glad to know that many eminent stroke neurologists worldwide have worked up an interesting way to spread stroke awareness and also to predict the chance of stroke in an individual who will participate in the "Stroke Riskometer App" study.
The research study will be conducted in mostly used languages in the world (including in Bengali) so that a large  section of world population may be covered in the screening of stroke, clinical research, prevention and its .prediction. 

This research project has been initiated and conducted by Prof. Valery Feiginof New Zealand, an eminent international personality in this field.

You will be glad to know that Stroke Foundation of Bengal has been honoured to conduct  the study  among the large Bengali speaking population, and it hopes that all personalities in the media , professional organisations,NGOs,   governments and the teaching Institutions will extend all help and co-operations in this wonderful global health care program.
