High blood pressure is a major risk factor heart disease. The persistent increased pressure forces the heart to work against itself. Mayo Clinic Cardiovascular Clinical Nurse Specialist Kathy Zarling explains high blood pressure, the associated risks, and how you can control your own risk factors.
Kathy will be part of a community blood pressure screening event at the Mall of America on Saturday, Feb. 27 from noon-3 p.m. in Macyâ€™s Court. If youâ€™re in the Twin Cities, join Kathy and her crew on Feb. 27 to learn more about ways to keep your heart healthy!
