No Pressure Blood Pressure
No Pressure Blood Pressure is a free service provided by the Department of Exercise and Sport Sciences and the Ithaca College Wellness Clinic to the faculty and staff of Ithaca College.
The goal of this service is three-fold:
- to provide free and convenient blood pressure checks to the Ithaca College community;
- to help educate the Ithaca College Community regarding blood pressure and the importance of monitoring it;
- to give exercise and sport sciences students the opportunity to practice and improve their clinical skills.
Who has time to check their blood pressure regularly? Not too many people.
Why? Most people only get their blood pressure checked when they make a visit to their doctors office. Can you even remember that last time you visited your doctor? Maybe last year when you had the flu .....mmmm when was that! Maybe you also can't remember what your blood pressure is or when you got it checked last.
What No Pressure Blood Pressure intends to provide is hassle-free, monthly blood pressure checks in your office building. Should you decide to participate it should take about one minute of your time and you will receive both the peace of mind in knowing what your blood pressure is and also a handy wallet sized card on which to record your blood pressure.
So the next time somebody asks you for your number....you'll know it!
