Stroke

Although anyone can have a stroke, genetics and lifestyle habits put some in greater jeopardy than others. Atlantic Health System’s stroke assessment can help you better understand your specific risk factors and provide you with recommendations for preventing a stroke. You should know your family history, blood pressure and cholesterol levels before taking this test to get the most accurate results. Once you have the outcome, share it with your doctor, so you can discuss ways to improve your health. Take the stroke assessment >
