As part of National Stroke Week, Brisbane staff from the ACU Health Clinic and Physiotherapy students, will be offering free blood pressure checks at the canteen from 12pm to 1.30pm on Thursday 17 September.
Our goal is to raise awareness of stroke - one of Australia's biggest killers and a leading cause of disability.
The National Stroke Foundation is encouraging all Australians to:
be aware of what stroke is, how to recognise a stroke and what to do
live healthy to reduce the risk of stroke
get a regular health check.
Those volunteering to have their blood pressure checked will go into the draw to win a Fit Bit.
