The Project is funded through a grant from the Bristol-Myers Squibb and Pfizer Alliance.

The American College of Emergency Physicians (ACEP) is leading the development, with other healthcare providers and patient educators, of a new educational program designed to educate the public and healthcare providers on the important warning signs of NVAF.

The educational program, under the name “Don’t Fib Yourself – This Could Kill You!” provides vital information regarding NVAF disease awareness, recognition of signs and symptoms, risk factors for developing NVAF-related stroke, access to care and ways to manage the condition, and appropriate treatment to reduce the risk of stroke.
