Crouse Hospital And Kinney Drugs Partner To Provide Free Stroke Prevention Screening

04/29/08

May is National Stroke Awareness Month 

Crouse Hospital will collaborate with Kinney Drugs to host a free stroke prevention screening Monday, May 12, Noon – 3 p.m. as part of the organizations’ health and wellness initiative during National Stroke Awareness Month. The screening will be held at the Kinney Drugs location at 9543 St. Rt. 11 in Brewerton. Call (315) 472-2464 to make an appointment.

 
Each evaluation includes readings for total cholesterol and glucose levels, as well as a blood pressure reading and personal consultation with a Crouse Hospital healthcare provider. No fasting is required; and results are received in approximately 15 minutes. A copy of the results can be sent to primary healthcare providers upon request.

 
Stroke is the third leading cause of death in the U.S., ranking behind heart disease and all forms of cancer, with someone suffering every 45 seconds. It is a leading cause of serious, long-term disability in the United States and killed 150,074 people in 2004. The screening is intended to encourage people to learn their personal risks for stroke and information about stroke prevention, warning signs and symptoms.
