The Stroke Association has joined forces with 14 other charities and Sport England to launch a new campaign: “We Are Undefeatable”. The campaign aims to support people living with health conditions to build physical activity and exercise into their lives and to celebrate every victory, big or small.
Being overweight increases your risk of having an ischaemic stroke by 22%. If you’re obese your risk increases by 64%. So it’s very important to try and maintain a healthy weight.
During February and March pharmacies across Wales are joining the Lower Your Risk of Stroke campaign, a partnership between Community Pharmacy Wales, Public Health Wales and the Stroke Association.
