Hudson County, NJ (PRWEB) May 06, 2014

In recognition of Stroke Awareness Month, CarePoint Health is pleased to present the next event in the Lunch and Learn free lecture series: “Women and Strokes”. The community is invited for lunch and a fascinating lecture to learn about how women are impacted by strokes and how they can stay healthy through measures to reduce their risk.

According to the National Stroke Association, strokes kill twice as many women as breast cancer every year. In fact, 425,000 women suffer from stroke each year - 55,000 more than men - and 70% of women are not aware they are more likely than men to have a stroke. These and other important topics will be explored to educate and empower women to take charge of their health, recognize the signs of stroke and reduce their risks.

The CarePoint Health Lunch and Learn program is part of an ongoing series that brings together community members to learn about the specialties, research and critical work being performed at Bayonne Medical Center, Hoboken University Medical Center and Christ Hospital. Each event will feature a prominent health care leader and will include a free lunch for attendees.
