Working age stroke

Stroke is closer than you think. This year, our focus for Action on Stroke Month is on working age stroke. The number of strokes occurring in men aged between 40 and 54 has rocketed by almost 50% in less than 15 years, yet many younger people are still unaware that they are at risk of stroke.
