80-90% of strokes are preventable!

Hold on to that thought.

Know when you are at greatest risk - and why.

Then take action.

Arm yourself with the knowledge - then reduce your risk. Control the controllable factors. Take the tests. Monitor the results.

This course concentrates on alcohol and stroke risk. Odd though this may seem - this course (which will always be free!) makes the ideal Christmas present for everyone. Anyone can get a stroke - and at Christmas your risks just might increase. This course will help prevent such an awful event happening - and applies equally to ALL holiday times!
