Blood Pressure Clinics – Ride for Heart Corporate Challenge

As part of the Ride for Heart Corporate Challenge, we will be hosting three Blood Pressure clinics. Did you know that 33-53% of people with high blood pressure (hypertension) don’t know they have it? High blood pressure is the number one risk factor for stroke and a major risk factor for heart disease. Take this opportunity to check your blood pressure and know your numbers.

BP Clinics will be on the following days and locations:

  • Mon, May 16 @ 1:30-3 p.m. in 9-200Z (Robbins)
  • Tue, May 17 @ 10-11:30 a.m. in 6-157 (Griffin’s Landing)
  • Wed, May 18 @ 12-1:30 p.m. in 8-208 (across from Tim Hortons)

Stop by and take care of your heart health!
