Got Blood Pressure?
Blood pressure self-testing stations will be set up district-wide February 19-23. Rock Solid Wellness is encouraging all employees to check their blood pressure with a simple, automatic blood pressure monitor. Blood pressure self-testing stations will be set up in each campuses employee lounge or other employee area. Check with your RSW Team Member for the location.
Blood pressure is the force of your blood pushing against the sides of your blood vessels (arteries). Everyone’s blood pressure fluctuates during the day; however heart damage and other health problems can occur if it stays high for a long time. Uncontrolled high blood pressure is a leading cause of heart disease and stroke in the United States. High blood pressure often shows no signs or symptoms, so it is important to get your blood pressure checked.
Knowing your blood pressure numbers can help you take action and reduce your chances of developing heart disease or other health problems.
