There are some stroke risk factors that you cannot do anything about, such as older age, being male, family history or already having a prior stroke. But for most Australians, you can reduce your risk and help prevent stroke by taking some simple steps:
- Make time for a health check for stroke risk factors.
- Take charge of your own health and live a healthy lifestyle.
1. Make time for a health check
