MAY IS BLOOD PRESSURE MONTH
World Hypertension Day is May 17th
80 Million Americans have high blood pressure, but just half of those with the condition have it controlled within a healthy range. High blood pressure has a domino effect on health, leading to heart attack, heart failure, stroke, and even kidney disease. Taking control of blood pressure, can have a huge impact on the rates of CVD and kidney disease.
In honor of World Hypertension Day on May 17, we're asking you to get your blood pressure checked as part of a global effort to reach 3 million blood pressure checks. Check your blood pressure now through May 17 and then click the "I CHECKED MY BLOOD PRESURE BUTTON" on our homepage!
