CMH Offering Free Stroke Screenings Every Friday

Ventura, CA. - Community Memorial Hospital is offering free mini stroke screenings every Friday, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., through its StrokeAware program.

Stroke is the No.3 cause of death from men and women, and the screenings are offered as a prevention strategy to identify and educate those who are at risk. Participants have their blood pressure taken and are given rhythm strip and carotid auscultation tests. They also are educated on the signs and symptoms of a stroke.

No appointment is necessary; walk-ins are welcomed. The StrokeAware program is in the Heartaware Early Detection Center located across the street from the hospital at 168 N. Brent St. on the third floor.
