May is National Stroke Awareness Month. In conjunction with the American Heart Association and the American Stroke Association, John C. Lincoln Hospitals will hold free public screening and community education events.

Strokes are the No. 3 killer in the United States, and the No. 1 cause of adult disability. Are you at risk? Attend a stroke screening for such risk factors as plaque buildup in the carotid artery, your heart rate and cholesterol (non-fasting) levels. You’ll also learn steps to take to prevent strokes and improve your health. Physicians and health care providers will be on site for counseling as well.
