Kingsbrook Hosts Stroke Screening Week
Kingsbrook will host a special stroke screening week from
February 24-28th at 11:00-2:00pm in the Vascular Laboratory. This special initiative is part of Kingsbrook’s
Best Health School outreach effort and is designed to increase access to early detection
and education initiatives that surround chronic diseases most pervasive
in the community. All screenings are free and no prior appointment is
needed. The vascular lab can be easily accessed at 585 Schenectady Avenue
between Winthrop Street & Rutland Road-Katz building 4th floor.
