YMCA of Southeastern North Carolina

Blood Pressure Self-Monitoring

The Y's Blood Pressure Self-Monitoring gives participants the knowledge and mentorship to monitor their blood pressure and track changes.

How it Works
Participants will work with trained Healthy Heart Ambassadors for the duration of the four-month program. During this time, participants will be encouraged to:
 
-Self-measure their blood pressure at least two times per month
-Attend two personalized consultations per month
-Attend monthly nutrition education seminars
 
Participants will record their blood pressure readings using an easy-to-use, self-selected tracking tool. The Y will provide options for participants who need a home blood pressure monitor.
 
Program Goals
-Reduction in blood pressure
-Better blood pressure management
-Increased awareness of triggers that elevate blood pressure
-Enhanced knowledge to develop healthier eating habits
 
To Qualify, Participants Must:
-Be at least 18 years old
-Be diagnosed with high blood pressure
-Not have experienced a recent cardiac event
-Not have atrial fibrilation or other arhythmias
