High blood pressure has no symptoms, and if left untreated, can cause serious damage to many of the body's organs and may lead to stroke, heart attack, and kidney damage.
The Farmington Valley VNA is sponsoring blood pressure screenings for individuals in general, those at risk, and anyone currently taking medication to see if their blood pressure is within normal range. A Registered Nurse will check your blood pressure, record the reading on a convenient wallet-size card, and answer health questions on medications, diet, and exercise.
No appointment is necessary. For more information, call the Farmington Valley VNA Community Programs department at 860.653.5514.
