Community Blood Pressure ScreeningRegister Now
Nearly half of American adults have high blood pressure. High blood pressure increases your risk for serious health problems, including stroke and heart attack.
Your risk for high blood pressure goes up as you get older. You’re also at increased risk for high blood pressure if you:
- Are African American
- Are overweight or have obesity
- Are currently pregnant or had high blood pressure during a past pregnancy
- Don’t get enough physical activity
- Drink too much alcohol
- Don’t eat a healthy diet
- Have kidney failure, diabetes, or some types of heart disease
Pelham Medical Center partners with Middle Tyger Family YMCA in Duncan to offer free blood pressure screenings. In addition to having your blood pressure checked, you will receive a tracking card to help keep up with your numbers plus education about what the numbers mean and ways to control hypertension.
Our table will be set up inside the main lobby area.
