This year, Stroke Week runs from 1-6 October 2018.
Last year we had a focus on high blood pressure. Read about it below.
Did you know that high blood pressure is a leading cause of stroke? It’s called the “silent killer” for good reason! These days, many experts reckon three-quarters of all strokes could be avoided, and maintaining a healthy blood pressure is a big part of that.
Stroke Week will culminate with our Big Blood Pressure Check – a chance for thousands of Kiwis to get a FREE blood pressure check at 200 sites around the country. See if there’s a site for a free test near you.
