Every year, nearly 800,000 people in the United States suffer from a stroke. Do you know if you are at risk?
The Rush Generations Program is partnering with the Rush Comprehensive Stroke Program for a telephonic stroke risk assessment screening. During this 15-minute phone call, you will have the opportunity to
- Review your blood pressure and other factors that contribute to stroke risk
- Learn changes we can make to prevent a future stroke
- Receive a basic plan for follow-up
In order to get the most benefit from the screening, we ask you bring a record of your recent blood pressure readings. Please try to obtain a recent reading within the previous day before the screening. You may use a home blood pressure monitor or use a public and free use blood pressure monitor at any supermarket or drug store.
