Atrial fibrillation (AF), a type of irregular heartbeat, is a major risk factor for stroke, but according to a recent national survey conducted by the not-for-profit Alliance for Aging Research, 80 percent of one thousand people polled were not aware of this important fact. Moreover, six out of 10 respondents were unaware that appropriate treatment may help prevent AF-related strokes. And while the prevalence of AF increases with age, nearly 70 percent of the 157 survey respondents over age 65 did not know they are at increased risk for this condition.

Hospital to offer free stroke screenings Experts from the Heart and Vascular Institute and Neuroscience Institute at Glendale Adventist Medical Center are offering a limited number of free tests to screen for stroke, abdominal aortic aneurysms and peripheral arterial disease. Stroke tests can indicate whether there may be narrowing or clogging of the blood vessels that supply blood to the brain, a problem that increases risk of stroke. An abdominal aortic aneurysm is a condition that appears as a weak area in the main blood vessels that carry blood from the heart to the rest of the body.

Two experiences at Providence St. Joseph Medical Center stick out in the minds of Howard and Hycy Hill, a Glendale couple who have considered the Burbank hospital their medical home for 53 years. The first was the birth of their daughter, also named Hycy, more than five decades ago, a fond memory that initiated a long-standing relationship between the Hills and the hospital, they said. The second memory is recent and more disconcerting — Howard Hill had to be treated at the center in August for a stroke.

Jin Park could no longer find the strength to pick up a club after playing golf for nearly a decade. After competing on the Glendale Community College men's golf team in 2011, Park opted to take last season off because of exhaustion. Feeling refreshed and having the urge to grip a club again, Park chose to return to the Vaqueros this season. Park's decision proved to be a wise one. After two solid rounds at the Western State Conference Tournament on Monday at Soule Park Golf Course in Ojai, Park extended his season and will next participate in the Southern California Regionals on May 6 at Los Lagos Costa Mesa Golf and Country Club.
