World Health Day 2013

This Sunday, April 7, 2013, is World Health Day, and this year's focus is on the hidden epidemic of high blood pressure across the world.  Because many people do not know they have high blood pressure (it may not always cause symptoms), it leads to more than nine million deaths every year, including about half of all deaths due to heart disease and stroke.

Celebrate your health on World Health Day (April 7, 2013). Take a minute to watch this video, then take another minute to make a choice to reduce your blood pressure risk (you can find resources and information here). You only get one life…make it a healthy one!
