High blood pressure has no symptoms, and if left untreated, can cause serious damage to many of the body's organs and may lead to stroke, heart attack, or kidney damage.
The Farmington Valley VNA hosts a wellness walking program on the 1st and 3rd Mondays of each month. Blood pressure readings are recorded by a Registered Nurse before and after an indoor walk, and the session concludes with an open discussion on health and wellness topics of interest. This community program is open to the public in general, those at risk for high blood pressure or related conditions, and anyone currently taking medication to see if their blood pressure is within normal range.
