Friday, May 17, 2024, marks World Hypertension Day dedicated to raising awareness about high blood pressure and its impact on health. On this day, individuals and organizations worldwide come together to educate communities about the importance of monitoring blood pressure, adopting healthy lifestyle habits, and seeking early intervention for hypertension. Physicians and PAs can share hypertension information and resources with your patients and on social media and in your office – several resources can be found here.

Through various initiatives such as health screenings, educational campaigns, and advocacy efforts, Hypertension Day aims to empower individuals to take control of their cardiovascular health and reduce the prevalence of hypertension-related complications. It serves as a reminder of the critical need for preventive measures and on-going management to promote heart health and overall well-being.
