"As part of our public health outreach for the month, the department will be sponsoring a series of free stroke screening and assessment clinics beginning May 11, 2007 at the main Health Department Building, 175 Sunset Avenue, Toms River."

Dr. Boyd said the May 11 stroke screenings will be held by appointment only, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Appointments may be made by calling 732-341-9700, ext. 7630, or 800-342-9738, ext. 7630."
