Women in Flin Flon and the surrounding area will have the chance to identify and reduce their risk for heart disease and stroke, their greatest health risk. A Women’s Health Stop session organized by the Heart and Stroke Foundation and Northern Health Region will be held Friday from 12 to 3 at the Friendship Center on Church Street. Primary Health Care Nurse Robbi Lynn Cooper Roberts says women of all ages will receive information about their risk factors. She says at the Health Stop they’re going to try to get people to know their risk for heart disease and stroke by doing blood pressure checks, some pulse checks, certain people will be getting their cholesterol checked, some smoking cessation as well as signing up for some presentations for stress management and getting information on heart disease and strokes.
