Screening and Prevention

Arkansas has the nation’s highest rate of death from stroke. Fortunately, advances in stroke treatment are saving lives, as is awareness about stroke prevention.

As part of the region’s most comprehensive stroke program, the Northwest Arkansas Neuroscience Institute is proud to do our part. We offer extensive community education about stroke warning signs and risk factors, which include:

  • Being overweight
  • Diabetes
  • Family history of stroke
  • High blood pressure
  • High cholesterol
  • Lack of physical activity
  • Smoking

It’s important to talk with your healthcare provider about your risk factors and work together to create a stroke prevention plan.
