Stroke – don’t let the pressure get to you!

Venue: Lecture Theatre 1, Academic Block, John Radcliffe Hospital, Headington, Oxford, OX3 9DU

High blood pressure is a contributing factor in around half of all strokes. On top of the 9.5 million people diagnosed with high blood pressure in the UK, an estimated 5.5 million are undiagnosed and untreated. In this free public talk, Dr Alastair Webb will explain how high blood pressure effects the brain, how to measure and diagnose high blood pressure and how this can improve prevention of stroke and other vascular diseases.

Speaker: Dr Alastair Webb, Wellcome Trust Clinical Research Development Fellow, Centre for the Prevention of Stroke and Dementia, Nuffield Department of Clinical Neurosciences, University of Oxford; Honorary Neurology Consultant, Oxford University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.

Organised by: NIHR Oxford Biomedical Research Centre
