May is designated Stroke Awareness Month and a good time to learn about your personal risk factors for stroke. Uncontrolled high blood pressure is the number one cause of stroke.
"Every adult should have theirs checked on a regular basis and take steps to lower it if it is too high" says David Knauf, Darien Director of Health.
For more information and the upcoming dates and times of local blood pressure screenings, please see the attached notice, issued today, from David Knauf.
