September is World Heart Month
This year the campaign is focusing upon stroke prevention. Over 2,000 people under 65 have a stroke each year, but the good news is that 80% of premature strokes are preventable. By making small changes to your lifestyle you can reduce your chances of having a stroke both now and in the future.
