Chronic Heart Conditions
HBP Survivor Story: Frank
You may not see or feel its symptoms, but high blood pressure affects about 85 million people in in the U.S., and its consequences— heart failure, heart attack, stroke, vision loss and kidney disease - are devastating. Luckily, high blood pressure can be managed effectively by working with your doctor to create a treatment plan and sticking to it. To encourage those with HBP to develop a plan they can stick to, the American Heart Association (AHA), American Stroke Association (ASA), and American Medical Association (AMA) have partnered with the Ad Council to launch a national PSA campaign featuring real survivors of stroke and heart attack to inform the public about the dangers of high blood pressure.
