You will learn about hypertension, high blood pressure, and healthy eating habits and how to apply this knowledge to your work with community members.
If you have an at-home blood pressure monitor, please have it available during the class.
The self-measured blood pressure program teaches individuals how to:
- Reduce and manage their blood pressure
- Increase their awareness of triggers that elevate blood pressure
- Improve their knowledge of heart-healthy eating habits
- Enrich communication with their health care provider by sharing self-monitoring results
