Blood Pressure Screening

Every 2nd and 4th Sunday of the month in the office

Volunteer nurses will be available in the office for regular blood pressure screening every second and fourth Sunday of the month.  Come in through the main office reception area. 

Blood pressure is one of the most important screenings because high blood pressure usually has no symptoms so it can’t be detected without being measured. High blood pressure greatly increases your risk of heart disease and stroke. If your blood pressure is below 120/80 mm Hg, be sure to get it checked at least once every two years, starting at age 20. If your blood pressure is higher, your doctor may want to check it more often. High blood pressure can be controlled through lifestyle changes or medication. After age 65, women have a higher risk of high blood pressure than men, and African-American adults of all ages have a higher-than-average risk.  heart.org
