Description

Abington - Jefferson Health is pleased to offer community-based free heart and stroke risk assessments and blood pressure screenings. Take steps necessary to monitor your blood pressure and assess your risk for heart attack or stroke. Nurses will review ways to reduce your risk, identify early signs and symptoms of heart attack and stroke and when to call 9-1-1.

What is a stroke risk assessment?

Stroke risk is calculated using several factors:

  • Blood pressure
  • Atrial fibrillation (irregular heartbeat)
  • Smoking
  • Cholesterol levels
  • Exercise
  • Diabetes
  • Diet
  • History of stroke in the family

Our trained Abington - Jefferson Health nurses will assess your risk for stroke using these factors and advise you on how to minimize your risk.  They will also teach you how to recognize the symptoms of a stroke and when to call 911.  A blood pressure screening is included. This program is free of charge.
