Watch Your Blood Pressure

The CDC puts the prevalence of hypertension, or high blood pressure, at 1 in 3 adults worldwide. That figure is true in the United States as well, according to the American Heart Association. Hypertension increases risk of strokes and heart attacks. The CDC warns that hypertension does not always have warning signs, so it is important to monitor your blood pressure regularly. You can do this at a doctor’s office, a pharmacy, or at home.

Head over to the Critical Path Learning Center on September 26 for a workshop for men on recognizing symptoms and treating hypertension. Register by calling 267-428-7352 or online at critpath.org/community-workshops
