The month of June is Stroke Month, and the Heart and Stroke Foundation released their 2018 Stroke Report this week.
This year’s focus is on women, and numbers show that women account for 59 percent of all stroke deaths, with as much as 70 percent not knowing risk factors.
Vice President of Health and Research for Heart and Stroke Alberta, Kate Chidester on some of the risks women should be aware of.
Chidester says the Heart and Stroke Foundation is committed to promoting awareness about heart health for women with their new campaign, Time to See Red.
