Did you know? Three out of four people who suffer their first stroke have high blood pressure. That makes Stroke Awareness Month a good time to have your blood pressure checked and brought under control if it’s not at or below the national guideline of 120/80. Overlook Medical Center offers screenings every Monday from 10:00am to 1:00pm at Overlook Downtown, located at 357 Springfield Avenue in Summit, NJ. Counseling and educational materials are provided.
