If you are like most people, you only get your blood pressure checked when you make a visit to the doctor’s office. Most likely you can't remember what your blood pressure was or indeed what it should be.
What "No Pressure Blood Pressure" intends to provide is hassle-free, monthly blood pressure checks in your office building. Undergraduate Exercise and Sport Science students will be accompanied either by a graduate student and/or a staff member from the Ithaca College Wellness Clinic to your office building on predetermined dates and times to check blood pressures.
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.
"No Pressure Blood Pressure" kicks off on Friday, the 13th of February, in celebration and support of American Heart Month.
For more information regarding blood pressure visit the IC Wellness Clinic.
