Do you know where you stand?
In America, 116.4 million adults have high blood pressure - and too many have no idea. Left undiagnosed, the condition can lead to heart attack or stroke. Help stop the “Silent Killer” by getting checked and making a generous gift to help a loved one in need.

Shave and a BP Reading, Two Bits!
In Cleveland, a nontraditional yet effective approach is underway: taking on high blood pressure in barbershops.
Blood pressure readings and information about the condition are now available at six barbershops that serve mostly African American clients.
The effort is part of the Barbers, Beauties and Blood Pressure program supported by the American Heart Association and Cleveland State University’s Partnership for Urban Health program.
Initiative improves kids' drink options when eating out
For many Cleveland kids, it’s a struggle to find healthy food and drink options. Fast food, processed snacks and sugary drinks — with the potential to increase risks for obesity, diabetes and other major health problems — are seemingly everywhere. Restaurant kids’ meals, which often include sugary drinks, are rarely any better. All told, the average Cleveland kid consumes enough sugar to fill a 30-gallon bathtub!
The American Heart Association is trying to change this picture. The organization brought nearly 40 organizations in to support the policy and worked to identify champions among City Council members. The group also found common ground with restaurant and beverage industry representatives.
