I WILL Prevent Another Stroke

1 in 4 stroke survivors will have another. Yet up to 80% of strokes may be prevented with a combination of medication and healthy habits, such as healthy diet and physical activity, that can have a big impact.

Secondary Stroke Prevention

Learn about the new guideline released by the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association for prevention of stroke in patients with previous stroke or a transient ischemic attack (TIA). Schedule time with your doctor to better understand the steps you can take to reduce your chance of another ischemic stroke.

Talk to your doctor about a prevention plan that could include:

 
Managing High Blood Pressure
Controlling Cholesterol
Manage Blood Glucose
Being Active
Eating Better
Losing Weight
Quit Smoking/Tobacco/Vaping

 
Take prescribed medications and check with your doctor before making any changes.
