The American Heart Association is always working on behalf of your heart health. Maintaining a healthy blood pressure is one of the many ways you can help keep your heart healthy. To help you understand your risk for high blood pressure (HBP), we have expanded our successful community-level BP monitoring program — Check. Change. Control.® — to locations throughout the country.
Check. Change. Control. empowers you to learn about, monitor and manage blood pressure through a combination of resources. To participate in or volunteer for a program in your area, click the appropriate link below to request more information.
If your community does not have Check. Change. Control. yet, don’t let that stop you from getting to know and monitor your blood pressure numbers. With blood pressure monitoring available at no cost in many pharmacies, health care facilities, and even fire stations, you can easily find out your blood pressure readings. AHA has extensive blood pressure information online and a BP tracking tool called the Check. Change. Control. ® Tracker. Your blood pressure matters, so get serious about a potentially serious health matter.
The Check. Change. Control. ® Tracker does more than track information. It provides information about your condition with relevant educational content, tools and resources. You will gain a better understanding of your current health information and will discover action plans suited to your current health needs. The CCC Tracker allows you to set up text message reminders, text in your readings and to connect with a volunteer health mentor to encourage you to reach your goal to have your blood pressure under control.
