Irish Heart Foundation make September 2017 Stroke Prevention Month

Irish Heart Month September 2017 is now underway!

 This year our campaign is focusing on Stroke Prevention- Life Begins at 40 so don’t let stroke stop it.

 Over 2000 people under 65 have a stroke each year but the good news is 80% of premature strokes are preventable. By making small changes to your lifestyle today you can reduce your chances of having a stroke now and in the future.

60% of over 45s in Ireland have high blood pressure which is a major risk for stroke.

So don’t delay: check your blood pressure today.

Find out what you need to do to avoid stroke and check out our materials available to order and download for free at

Let’s Strike Before Stroke together this September.
