Did you know? High blood pressure is the most common underlying condition identified in San Diego County’s COVID-related deaths.
The best way to know if you have high blood pressure is to have it checked, as there are often no warning signs or symptoms to tell you something is wrong. The event brings together community partners to prevent heart disease and stroke and empowers the public to take control of their heart health, know their blood pressure numbers, and know what they mean.
The next event is:
