Free blood pressure checks at Lismore Base today, tomorrow
THERE will be free blood pressure checks in the Lismore Base Hospital foyer today and tomorrow for National Stroke Awareness Week.
Hospital coordinator Kim Hoffman said strokes were Australia's second biggest killers after coronary disease.
"By hosting a stroke awareness stall we are encouraging community members to learn the signs of stroke and how to minimise their own risk," Ms Hoffman said.
