Know Your Blood Pressure

High Blood Pressure Often Has No Symptoms:

  • 1 out of 3 adults have high blood pressure, yet many don’t know it.
  • The first sign of high blood pressure could be a stroke – but it doesn’t have to be.
  • High blood pressure raises the risk of heart attack and stroke. The first step to lowering it is to know your blood pressure.
  • High blood pressure is preventable and treatable. Find out what yours is today.

See new blood pressure guidelines from the American Heart Association and the American College of Cardiology announced November 13, 2017.

About the Know Your Blood Pressure Campaign

In 2016, a Santa Clara County health needs assessment identified hypertension as a priority health need county wide. Left untreated, high blood pressure can damage the brain, heart and coronary arteries, leading to heart attack, stroke, diabetes, heart disease, congestive heart failure and death.

Know Your Blood Pressure is a public awareness campaign launched by the El Camino Healthcare District with the American Heart Association Silicon Valley. Together with community partners, we aim to motivate community members to check, know and manage their blood pressure. The District’s Community Benefit Grant Program is supporting blood pressure screening events and free hypertension management classes for District residents through its support of the American Heart Association’s Check.Change.Control® Program. The campaign aims to educate and inspire residents to know their blood pressure, understand the risks of not knowing and find local screening opportunities for themselves and loved ones.
