• World Hypertension Day 2019

    Rebecca Topping | May 17, 2019

    Hypertension is the medical term used to describe high blood pressure. Blood pressure is the force of the blood pumped from the heart against the blood vessels. This force makes blood flow possible, delivering nutrients and oxygen to organs and tissues throughout the body.

    Hypertension occurs when there is too much pressure in your blood vessels. This can damage your blood vessels and cause health problems. Anyone can develop high blood pressure, but it becomes more common as you get older.

    The good news is that high blood pressure can be managed through exercise, diet, and medication. That's why it's important to have regular check ups with your family doctor and your healthcare team. Hypertension is one of the conditions that our Prevention and Chronic Disease Management Program can help.
