Remember to follow-up with your doctor!  Make an appointment with your doctor to get your blood pressure re-checked. While you're there, have your home blood pressure cuff calibrated by a nurse to ensure your readings are correct.

ABOUT LOVE YOUR HEART

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.

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.
