Let's Talk About Blood Pressure
Almost half of American adults have high blood pressure, and many don’t know it. Most of the time high blood pressure (HBP, or hypertension) has no obvious symptoms to indicate that something is wrong, but HBP can lead to heart attack, stroke, and kidney failure.
To help the community be aware of the risks and make changes that matter, the AHA (American Heart Association) created the eLearning micromodules Let’s Talk About Blood Pressure.
The online modules take about 15 minutes to complete and bring awareness to the problem, explain blood pressure numbers in a way that is easily understood, present lifestyle and other treatments to lower and manage high blood pressure, and provide support in sharing this information with others in their family and community.
