CCHS BP Ambassadors Program

shutterstock_97788065The Christiana Care Blood Pressure Ambassador Program was developed to positively impact high blood pressure in the African American community using a model of peer education and support. Community members are recruited and trained as Blood Pressure Ambassadors to deliver a scripted, actionable, health promotion message and perform blood pressure screenings.  All participants with hypertension are encouraged to see their provider. Any participant without a provider is assisted to connect with care.
