Hypertension

About Hypertension

Blood pressure is the force of blood pushing against the walls of the arteries that carry blood from your heart to other parts of your body. Blood pressure normally rises and falls throughout the day, but it can damage your heart and cause health problems if it stays high for a long time. High blood pressure is also called hypertension. This can lead to serious health conditions such as Heart Disease and Stroke. Managing your blood pressure is key to a healthy heart.

The Chronic Disease Program created a Heart Disease booklet to help you reduce your risk for Heart Disease.

Understanding Hypertension

In addition to the Heart Disease booklet, "Understanding Hypertension" online course is available and can be accessed wherever you have an internet connection.
