A stroke occurs when the blood supply to part of your brain is interrupted or severely reduced. Within minutes, brain cells begin to die from lack of oxygen and food to the brain. However, 80 percent of strokes are preventable. Strokes are the No. 3 killer in the United States, and strokes are the No. 1 cause of adult disability.
Are you at risk? The event will screen for risk factors including plaque buildup in the carotid arteries, heart rate and cholesterol (must follow fasting instructions) and will provide education on preventing strokes and improving your health. Physicians and health care providers will be on site for counseling as well.
Find out at the free screenings from 6 to 8 p.m., May 22, Wednesday, at John C. Lincoln Medical Office Building 1, 19841 N. 27th Ave., Room 400, Phoenix, on the campus of John C. Lincoln Deer Valley Hospital. Cholesterol test: Fast after breakfast. Medications allowed with sips of water. If diabetic, you must fast four to six hours prior to test.
Please RSVP by calling 623-434-6265 or RSVP@JCL.com to ensure your spot. Please note that without fasting, the cholesterol test cannot be taken. Water and juice will be available after the test.
