Blood Pressure Self Monitoring



How the program works:

Participants will work with trained Healthy Heart Ambassadors for the duration of the four-month program.

During this time, participants will be encouraged to

  • Self-measure their blood pressure at least two times per month
  • Attend two personalized consultations per month
  • Attend monthly nutrition education seminars

Participants will record their blood pressure readings using an easy-to-use, self-selected tracking tool.

The Y will provide options
for participants who need a home blood pressure monitor.

Program Goals:
  • Reduction in blood pressure
  • Better blood pressure management
  • Increased awareness of triggers that elevate blood pressure
  • Enhanced knowledge to develop healthier eating habits
