Known as the silent killer, stroke is the third leading cause of death in the United States and a leading cause of disability for older adults. Physicians and nurses will provide free stroke-risk evaluations and important information to help lower stroke risk and save lives.

Stroke screenings can be extremely beneficial for adults 45 and older — particularly those who have had a stroke previously, are male, overweight, of African-American descent, or suffer from high blood pressure or high cholesterol.

The event will happen rain or shine and registration is not required. For more information, call 1-888-4GW-DOCS.
