Stroke & Health Awareness Day May 27th

 

STROKE AND HEALTH AWARENESS DAY 27TH MAY 2017

The annual Stroke and Health Awareness Day is being organized by Ludlow Rotary Club in conjunction with the Stroke Association and local health professionals. This free event, to be held in Oscar’s at the  Assembly Rooms, Ludlow, on Saturday 27th May is open to any adult who wishes to know if they may be at risk from a stroke. Doors open at 10 am and close at 3 pm.
A visit to the Stroke and Health Awareness Day will enable people, who do not have regular medical treatment, to identify factors which may lead to a stroke. All who attend will be offered a blood pressure check. Where appropriate, blood glucose level will be tested. The individual’s body mass index will be calculated from a measurement of their weight and height. This is a useful measure for calculating risk, especially for people who have raised blood pressure.

People who attend will be given a Personal Information Record. Anyone with an identifiable risk factor will be counselled about their condition and what appropriate action they should take.

Attendance is FREE, no appointment is needed and a visit is potentially life-saving.
