About

Get your blood pressure checked regularly and do your best to keep track of your blood pressure numbers.

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
  • Smoke
  • Don’t eat a healthy diet
  • Have kidney failure, diabetes, or some types of heart disease

Pelham Medical Center partners with Eastside Family YMCA in Taylors 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. We hope to see you there!
