Stroke

In sports, they sometimes say the best defense is a good offense. Maintaining a healthy body is no different. When you know your risk for certain conditions, like stroke, you’re better able to take proactive steps to help prevent it. This can mean quitting smoking, exercising more often or getting a genetic screening test to learn your family health history. Take our assessment test now to discover what factors influence stroke and lifestyle changes within your control to reduce your risk.
