DID YOU KNOW?
1 in 3 American Adults have high blood pressure.
The YMCA of Long Island is proud to offer Blood Pressure Self-Monitoring Program at our Huntington YMCA and Patchogue Family YMCA.
HOW THE PROGRAM WORKS
Participants will work with trained Healthy Heart Ambassadors for the duration of the four-month program. During this time participants will be encouraged to:
- Self-measure their blood pressure at least two times per month
- Attend two personalized consultations per month
- Attend monthly nutrition education seminars
Participants will record their blood pressure readings using an easy-to-use, self-selected tracking tool. The Y will provide options for participants who need a home blood pressure monitor.
This program is available only in Huntington YMCA and Patchogue Family YMCA.
