The goal of this partnership is to inform men of their blood pressure levels and educate them on ways they can successfully manage their blood pressure. The American Heart Association will be providing valuable blood pressure information as well as a FREE lunch for the first 30 participants at each location.
HopeHealth will be providing blood pressure screenings and will give away 10 FREE blood pressure monitors at each location. To keep this initiative moving forward in each community, the participating barbershops will also receive a free blood pressure monitor and training on how to correctly check their customers’ blood pressure.
While Florence and Lake City are the first stops on this tour, other locations will include Manning and Orangeburg. Participants needing a healthcare home will also have the opportunity learn how to become a patient with HopeHealth.
