Stroke Prevention

During Healthy Heart Month 2017 the project focused on Stroke Prevention.  Our Primary Health Care for Travellers Project (PHCTP) distributed resources and held a stroke information session.

As high blood pressure is a major cause of stroke (4 out of 10 Travellers have high blood pressure) the PHCTP also organised blood pressure checks with the PHN and have organised for the Irish Heart mobile unit to visit sites next month.
