February 8-14, 2021
(with extended dates for heart month activities February 1-28).
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.
High blood pressure is 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.
Thank you to those that participated in Love Your Heart this year by:
Check your blood pressure by making an appointment with your primary care physician or by checking it with a home blood pressure cuff.
Love Your Heart at Home provides
resources for knowing your numbers, eating healthy, reducing stress,
getting active, and quitting tobacco.
