Join Us On World Hypertension Day - Monday, May 17th
Join us from 7 p.m. – 8 p.m. (CST) on Monday, May 17th – World Hypertension Day – for the American Heart Association’s National Hypertension Control Initiative virtual event where we’ll show you how you can partner with your community to remove barriers to health and get blood pressure under control.
You’ll meet a panel of community members, including a pastor, national barbershop owner, health care professional and patient who will demonstrate how working together, trusting and supporting each other through blood pressure education, self - blood pressure monitoring and connecting with a health care professional can make a difference in the health of the community. The panel will be streamed on the AHA’s YouTube channel, youtube.com/americanheart, on Monday, May 17th, from 7:00 – 8:00 p.m. CT.
American Stroke Month & Maternal Health
Moms, sisters, aunties, grandmothers… our mother figures are often under one roof. They’re champion worriers and champion conquerors of the to-do list. We’ve never met a woman who didn’t wake up with her mind set on crossing off something from the list, and who didn’t fall asleep worried she could’ve done one more thing (usually for someone else). Even more so thanks to pod-centric pandemic life.
But what if one thing could cancel out a worry? What if keeping your blood pressure in check today could mean that you didn’t have to worry about stroke tomorrow… and your family didn’t have to worry about a stroke happening to you?
