Blood Pressure Program Pilot a Success, BCHN Plans Expansion
BCHN began a six-month hypertension management program pilot in July at Bay Eden Senior Center. Free screenings were provided each week, along with education on blood pressure monitoring and management. BCHN helped participating community members create action plans with objectives focused on exercise and healthy eating. The pilot ran through January and received overwhelmingly positive results and feedback. The Wednesday morning program has now been added to the Bay Eden Senior Center schedule for the next year. Bay Eden will celebrate the success of the pilot and the progress made by participants at special event on March 27.
BCHN plans on expanding the program with another site to be announced soon.
