Stroke

Did you know? Three out of four people who suffer their first stroke have high blood pressure. Make it a point to get your blood pressure checked and take appropriate steps to bring it under control if it’s not at or below the national guideline of 120/80. Hackettstown Medical Center offers a Healthy Hearts support group on the first Wednesday of every month from 12:30 to 1:30pm in our first floor conference dining room. Register by calling 908-850-6819.
