FREE Blood Pressure Screening
With the recently revised blood pressure guideline, many Americans are now considered to have high blood pressure. The best ways to protect against heart attack, stroke and other complication of high blood pressure are to participate in routine blood pressure screenings, eat foods that lower blood pressure, participate in regular, moderate exercise 4-5 days per week and take prescriptions medicines according to your doctor’s orders.
Hospice of Washington County is pleased to provide space at two of its Community Life Centers to USMH Community Nursing Students, who will conduct COMPLIMENTARY blood pressure screenings for the entire community. With the goal of improving overall community health, the nursing students will share information, answer questions and take blood pressures at the Boonsboro Community Life Center on February 7, 2018 from 9 a.m. – noon.
