Hypertension


The Check. Change. Control. program that the Obesity, Diabetes, Heart Disease, and Stroke Prevention (ODHDSP) grant has been promoting has been re-branded to  Know It, Control It for Seniors. The program will continue to be led by blood pressure coaches who help older adults self-monitor their blood pressure and incorporate healthy lifestyle habits to control high blood pressure. Participants will meet in a group setting of 8 to 12 people twice a month for four consecutive months. Participants will receive blood pressure checks, training on how to self-monitor their blood pressure and record the readings through the "CCC tracker" or paper log, and be educated on healthy lifestyle topics during each session.
In order to enroll in this program, you must:
  • Be at least 50 years old
  • Have been diagnosed with high blood pressure
  • Have a normal heart beat
  • Not have had a heart attack or stroke in the past six month
