Red Flags for Heart Attack and Stroke

Taking care of your health is the best gift you can give yourself and your loved ones. University Health Care System is proud to announce the opening of our Heart Attack and Stroke Prevention Center, located in the University Heart and Vascular Institute. We are dedicated to helping you accurately assess your risk for heart attack and stroke and to providing education regarding an aggressive treatment method that has been shown to prevent these, as well as other, devastating cardiovascular diseases.
