CMH Offering Free Stroke Screenings Every Friday
Ventura, California, 12/04/2009
Community Memorial Hospital is offering free mini stroke screenings every Friday, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., through its HealthAware: Stroke program.
Stroke is the number three cause of death from men and women, and the screenings are offered as a prevention strategy to identify and educate those who are at risk. Participants have their blood pressure taken and are given rhythm strip and carotid auscultation tests. They also are educated on the signs and symptoms of a stroke.
No appointment is necessary; walk-ins are welcomed. The HealthAware: Stroke program is in the Early Detection Center located across the street from the hospital at 168 N. Brent St. on the third floor.
For more information, call (805) 667-2818.
