Abstract

Objective

The objective of this study is to determine whether a school-based program that allows middle school students to actively take responsibility of their learning can act as an effective intervention to promote stroke awareness and healthy lifestyle.

Methods

Middle school students in grades 6, 7, and 8 (ages 11–14) were divided into small groups and participated in a series of interactive learning activities, centered on motivating middle school kids to learn and recognize signs and symptoms of stroke and to learn healthy lifestyle choices.

Results

A total of 127 sixth, 113 seventh, and 98 eighth grade students participated in the intervention program. ANOVA found a significant difference in the baseline knowledge of all stroke and healthy life parameters evaluated in the pre-and post-intervention between the 6th, 7th, and 8th grades. Post-hoc analysis revealed a significant change in the performance (P < 0.001) from pre to the post-intervention for all grade levels.

Conclusions

A school-based intervention program that allows middle school students to actively learn how to recognize the signs of a stroke and to identify healthy lifestyle choices can significantly change knowledge from baseline and act as an effective tool to promote stroke and healthy lifestyle education.
