Take action to improve heart health with blood pressure self-monitoring at the Garfield YMCA. Participants will work with trained healthy heart ambassadors for the duration of the four-month program, during which participants will be encouraged to self-measure their blood pressure at least two times per month, attend to personalized consultations and 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.

The program's goals are:

  • Reduction in blood pressure
  • Better blood pressure management
  • Increased awareness of the triggers that elevate blood pressure
  • Enhanced knowledge to develop healthier eating habits

To qualify, participants will need to be at least 18, been diagnosed with high blood pressure, not have experienced a recent cardiac event and not have atrial fibrillation or other arrhythmias.

For more information, call 973-772-7450.
