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.

Changing Policy

Our legislative and regulatory priorities help to mitigate risk factors and protect survivors in communities across the country. We advocate for federal, state and local policies that help Americans build healthier lives free of cardiovascular disease and stroke.
