Make Your Heart Happy - Bring Down Hypertension, Part 1
New guidelines indicate many more people – and younger people – fall into the at-risk group for hypertension. The “lower your salt intake” mantra can drown out the more positive message about delicious food you can add to your plate to help keep blood pressure in check.
This is part one of a two-part series titled: Make your Heart Happy. Part two, Cut Your Cholesterol, will be held on February 27th.
Please note the event location: Roxbury Room of the Hannah Grimes Center for Entrepreneurship.
