There are new ways for your risk of a stroke to be determined in advance. And by just giving up 1/2 hour of your time and a small fee you can find out where you stand.

We have worked with the folks at Stroke Detection Plus to bring these screenings to Faribault.  One Faribault person they screened in the past found out she had an 80% blockage in her right carotid artery. She went on to have surgery and now feels great.

Stroke Detection Plus will be having a screening event at the Faribault Area Chamber of Commerce office on Tuesday, May 22nd from 8:30 am to 2 pm. The cost for a full wellness profile is $135.00. (This includes a stroke screening, Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm Screening, Peripheral Arterial Disease Screening and Osteoporosis.)You can ad an EKG for Atrial Fibrillation for another $35.00. A small price to pay to find out if you are at risk or not.

You need to make an appointment at 1-877-732-8258. And you can buy one set of tests and get another set free.

Here is my interview with Scott McGlothlen, President of Stroke Detection Plus.
