World Hypertension Day is May 17!



May 17 is #WorldHypertensionDay. This event aims to increase the awareness of the risks of high blood pressure (hypertension) and encourage people to prevent and control this condition.

Many people with high blood pressure know that they could be at risk for stroke and heart attack. New  attention to the risk of high blood pressure is emerging: the possible connection between uncontrolled blood pressure and dementia. A number of important studies link high blood pressure, especially in midlife, to an increased risk for dementia later in life.

Scientists are working hard to learn more about this connection. In the meantime, don’t take unnecessary risks. Keep your blood pressure under control.

Mind Your Risks.
