The American Heart Association advocates for a number of policies that work to prevent stroke in our communities. This Stroke Month, we’re taking it a step further with a social media awareness campaign called #CheckItNashville.
Since high blood pressure is a leading cause of stroke, every day in May we are posting a photo of an influential Nashvillian getting his or her blood pressure checked to encourage others to know their numbers and check their blood pressure regularly. Follow along our social media accounts and join the fun using the hashtag #CheckItNashville!
With almost 1 in 2 American adults having high blood pressure, we hope you'll take the time this Stroke Month to get your blood pressure checked!
