Stroke Check
In conjunction with the American Heart Association, Banner Thunderbird is offering free stroke screenings during National Stroke Awareness Month. The Stroke Check community screening program is designed to educate people who may not know they are at risk of stroke. People currently under the care of physicians for stroke, mini-stroke or TIA should instead continue care with their own physician. Activities vary by hospital but may include completion of a written stroke risk assessment, blood pressure and pulse screen, glucose screen (4-hour fast is recommended) and the opportunity to talk with clinical experts.

Date: May 17, 2014
Time: 8 a.m.-noon
Location: Outpatient Surgery Center
RSVP: (602) 230-2273 (CARE) or online
