Are you one of the 85 million people in the United States who has high blood pressure?

Also known as the silent killer or hypertension, high blood pressure typically has no symptoms but can lead to deadly health consequences. Despite how widespread it is and how damaging it can be, high blood pressure is still unknown, misunderstood or ignored by many people.

Check. Change. Control. is a 16-week evidence based hypertension management program designed to empower participants to take ownership of their cardiovascular health. The program promotes regular blood pressure self-monitoring at home using propertechniques, individualized support and nutrition education by a Healthy Heart Ambassador.
