St. Joseph's Hospital provided free blood pressure checks on Thursday.
The hospital recognized the National 'Measure Up Pressure Down Roll Up Your Sleeves' event.
The campaign encourages adults to get in control with lifestyle changes like: knowing your numbers, eating right, staying active, eliminating tobacco and taking medication.
High blood pressure is one of our nation's most pressing health issues.
An estimated one in three (68 million) Americans have the disease, often referred to as the silent killer. Uncontrolled high blood pressure can lead to heart disease, stroke, heart attack, kidney disease, and other serious health problems.
