The Aspirin Project
Aspirin can save lives, preventing heart attack, stroke, and cancer, but is not right for everyone. Through its new Aspirin Project website, the Council on Aspirin for Health and Prevention seeks to increase appropriate use of aspirin to improve health. This new initiative gives consumers and healthcare providers key information about aspirin. The Aspirin Project urges consumers to have a conversation with their providers to decide if low-dose aspirin is right for them. For clinicians, counseling about daily, low-dose aspirin use is one of the highest value preventive services they can provide.
