The next No Pressure Blood Pressure will be held on Tuesday, April 22nd. Important reasons not to miss the next screening:
1. 65 million Americans have hypertension (high blood pressure)
2. Many people don't even know their blood pressure is high because there are no symptoms in most cases
3. Hypertension can lead to heart disease, stroke, heart failure, and kidney disease
4. 66% of those IC employees measured at the last screening were pre-hypertensive (above ideal )
5. A 20 point increase in systolic blood pressure (top number) or a 10 point increase in diastolic blood pressure (bottom number) doubles the risk of heart disease.
6. Poor diet, inactivity, and being overweight can lead to an increase in blood pressure
7. If one does not adopt a healthy lifestyle, the hypertensive individual will need to take costly medication with potential side effects
8. Physical and emotional stress can elevate your blood pressure

The time has come to commemorate Latin@s as an integral part of this community through a public display of art. CULTURA and the Latino Civic Association are excited to commission an artist to paint a mural that celebrates our community's Latin@ culture. Latin@ culture is immensely diverse and we welcome submissions that honor a particular Latin American heritage, as well as submissions that encompass Latin@ culture in general or locally. A wide array of Latin@s live in Tompkins County that work, study and/or care for their families and each other. Latin@s have lived here for several generations, many are native to the US or have migrated here from other countries. The Latin@ Mural Project provides a platform for the message of Latinidad.
May 23: Submissions due by 1 pm
June 6: Winning proposal announced
Summer 2014: Mural painted
Open to all.
