Lower Your Pressure: A Blood Pressure Refresher!

One in three adults in the United States has high blood pressure - it is sometimes called the “silent killer.” If you completed your Biometric Screening, you received your blood pressure reading. A normal blood pressure reading is 120/80 or lower. It is recommended that you monitor your pressure on a regular basis if your reading is above normal.

Wellness Works is launching a "Lower Your Pressure" campaign September 8 - 30, 2015 with a Blood Pressure Refresher.

Blood Pressure Refresher:

If you complete the quiz by Wednesday, September 30 and provide your name and interoffice mailing address, you will receive a blood pressure recorder, and a motivational wristband.

Locate a blood pressure machine close to you and monitor your blood pressure on a regular basis.
