What's Your Number?

This May, health care professionals from coast to coast – primary care physicians, pharmacists, nurses, and specialists – will hold community blood pressure screening events and host Canadians who want to know their numbers and how to best prevent and control hypertension (high blood pressure) and avoid its serious and deadly complications.

How to get your numbers and what they mean

How to host a blood pressure screening event

Hypertension is the leading preventable cause of death and disability around the world, and can lead to heart disease, stroke, kidney disease, and dementia. Over 7.5 million Canadians have hypertension, and 7.4 million more have high blood pressure that will lead to hypertension without preventative action.

This May, check your numbers and take action to keep your blood pressure healthy!

Hypertension Canada annually promotes World Hypertension Day (May 17) in partnership with the World Hypertension League and the international Society of Hypertension
