About High Blood Pressure
Sometimes what you don’t know can kill you, but putting knowledge into action can save your life! And high blood pressure, often called the silent killer, is the kind of condition that greatly increases your risk of heart disease and stroke, especially when it goes unmanaged. Its impact is far reaching too, affecting about 70 million Americans and the rates of high blood pressure are significantly higher in African Americans.
The Get To Goal Commitment
Get To Goal has been designed to help you get on track with blood pressure management. We will provide you a Volunteer Health Mentor to assist you with entering and tracking your bi-monthly blood pressure readings. In addition your Volunteer Health Mentor will share opportunities for you to enter drawings for special prizes throughout the program.
