Morning Rounds: High Blood Pressure Month

The Morning Show

Dr. Nathan Walker with Christie Clinic joins the Morning Show and in this week’s Morning Rounds, he is discussing national high blood pressure month.

One in three American adults has high blood pressure.  About three in four people who have a first stroke, have blood pressure greater than 140/90 mm Hg.  The American Heart Association says high blood pressure is usually preventable with simple steps, yet it kills more people worldwide than any other condition.  As part of #CheckIt, the American Heart Association (AHA) wants people to check their blood pressure by May 17, World Hypertension Day.
