Blood Pressure Self-Monitoring Program

Blood Pressure Self-Monitoring Program

STAY HEART HEALTHY

Blood Pressure Self-Monitoring Program is designed to help participants with hypertension lower their blood pressure by following an evidence-based program that combines blood pressure self-monitoring, nutrition education and personalized support.

– Personalized support from a Y Healthy Heart Ambassador

Participants must meet the following criteria to participate in the program:

– Must be at least 18 years old

– Must be diagnosed with high blood pressure

– Must not have experienced a recent cardiac event
