HMC GOES RED FOR WOMEN'S HEALTH

Feb 5th is Wear Red Day and promotes awareness for women’s heart health but that is just the beginning!


For the entire month of February, from coast to coast, Americans are united to raise awareness and take action towards a common goal - prevent the deaths of women from heart disease! 1 in 3 women die from cardiovascular disease according to the American Heart Association.


Be a part of the movement! Wear red, talk to the women you love about their heart health, and take steps to improve your own health. Here are some steps you can take today:
  • Eat healthy
  • Be active
  • Quit smoking
  • Know your numbers
  • Maintain a healthy weight

MONITOR YOUR BLOOD PRESSURE REGULARLY

Measure your blood pressure regularly to help your health care team diagnose any health concerns early. You and your health care team can take steps to control your blood pressure if it is too high.

Talk with your health care team about regularly measuring your blood pressure at home, also called self-measured blood pressure (SMBP) monitoring.

SMBP means you regularly use a personal blood pressure measurement device at home, work, or another setting outside of a doctor’s office or hospital. These blood pressure monitors are safe and easy to use. If you need assistance, a health care team member can help.

Evidence shows that people with high blood pressure are more likely to lower their blood pressure if they use SMBP combined with support from their health care team than if they do not use SMBP.
