Stroke is the 4th leading cause of death for women and is twice as common
as breast cancer. Recently, BCH's
Dr. Alan Zacharias
spoke with Channel 7's Nicole Brady about women and stroke risk.
According to Dr. Zacharias, there are some important lifestyle changes
you can make to limit your risk for stroke such as making sure you get
regular exercise, following a heart healthy diet, avoiding tobacco and
having regular check ups with your primary care provider.
Boulder Community Health has been awarded
Advanced Certification as a Primary Stroke Center by The Joint Commission and the American Heart Association/American Stroke
Association. For more information, visit bch.org/stroke.
