BLOOD PRESSURE SELF-MONITORING PROGRAM

TAKE ACTION TO IMPROVE HEART HEALTH

1 in 3 American adults have high blood pressure, and only 1/2 have their condition under control.

The simple process of checking and recording your blood pressure at least twice a month over a period of four months has been shown to lower blood pressure in some people with hypertension.

Blood Pressure Self-Monitoring is an evidence-based program that features personalized support for developing a blood pressure self-monitoring routine, tips for maintaining cardiovascular health and provides nutrition education seminars.
