Stroke Check 2015
Banner Health is proud to join forces with the American Heart Association to provide the Stroke Check community screening program designed to identify persons at risk of stroke who don't know if they are. People currently under the care of physicians for stroke, mini-stroke, TIA, should instead continue care with their own physician.

The screening includes completion of a written stroke risk assessment, blood pressure and pulse screens, cholesterol/glucose screen (four-hour fast is recommended) and review of results by a clinician.

Sexual climax is highly desired, yet shrouded in mystery and often misunderstood. It exists at the core of an intimate relationship, yet is often ignored or denied. This may be due to inaccurate education about body physiology, or embarrassment about seeming ignorant on technique. Practical information about all factors that promote living a turned-on life will be presented, and participants will achieve clarity about sexual anatomy, physiology and function surrounding female orgasm.

Ads for herbs and agents to enhance sexual performance abound in media.  Find out the truth about lifestyle changes, foods to eat and diagnostic tests to help you function at an optimal level of healthy sexuality.
