Did you know that up to 80% of strokes are preventable, yet it is expected that nearly 795,000 people in the United States will have a stroke this year?

This May is National Stroke Awareness Month, a time to raise public awareness about important stroke facts to reduce the incidence and impact of stroke.
A nurse from Greenwich Community Health will be available in Perrot’s Rand Room on Wednesday, May 27th, between 10 A.M. and 2 P.M., to provide educational information about strokes, and to conduct free blood pressure screenings.
