Do you need to have your blood pressure checked?  About one in every four American adults has high blood pressure.  The bad news is that many people are unaware their pressure is high.  The good news:  it can be treated and controlled!

High blood pressure is responsible for 35% of all cardiovascular problems like heart attacks or strokes and 24% of preventable deaths.

A reading below 120/80 is considered normal, according to the National Heart, Lung & Blood Institute.

Blood Pressure is taken by a registered nurse on the 1st, 3rd and 4th Wednesday of each month from 10:30am - 11:30 am. 

There is no charge, however donations are accepted.
