Love Your Heart

   

Week of Action: February 12-20, 2022

Coming soon - Love Your Heart 2022!

Check back here for the latest information on the event as it becomes available.

Love Your Heart is an annual event in which organizations from across the U.S. and Mexico join together to provide FREE blood pressure screenings to the public on or near Valentine's Day. The event brings together community partners to prevent heart disease and stroke and empowers the public to take control of their heart health, know their blood pressure numbers, and know what they mean.

In 2020, High blood pressure was the most common underlying condition identified in San Diego County’s COVID-related deaths. The best way to know if you have high blood pressure is to have it checked, as there are often no warning signs or symptoms to tell you something is wrong.

The 2021 event had over 27,000 participants screened online and in-person at 188 sites across the U.S. and Mexico, with over 6,000 blood pressure cuffs distributed across San Diego County.

Check your blood pressure by making an appointment with your primary care physician or by checking it with a home blood pressure cuff.
