Community Heart Health Education

This Workshop will focus on the importance of hypertension awareness, its signs, causes, potential impact, and resources available to prevent and manage it.

Keeping blood pressure numbers within a normal range is vital for health and overall well-being. Our heart health education classes and workshops aim to increase community awareness.

Our events help improve the awareness, detection, and management of high blood pressure, especially for people who may be at increased risk but do not exhibit signs or symptoms before these risks become life-threatening illnesses.

The HGF Team trains participants on monitoring blood pressure at home, distributes heart health educational materials, and provides tips on healthy eating and physical activities. In addition, HGF distributes home blood pressure monitoring machines and other giveaways during select events.
