It’s Cuffing Season
When a chill adorns the air and leaves begin to fall, you know cuffing season is upon us. While this is known as a seasonal dating period for many, for ETS ambassadors, this is a period when we encourage you to check your blood pressure.
Because the guidelines have changed. The impact of the new guidelines is expected to be greatest among younger people and African Americans. The prevalence of high blood pressure is expected to triple among men under age 45 and double among women under 45, according to the report. For African-Americans, high blood pressure develops earlier in life and is usually more severe.
The goal of the season is to get cuffed and take control of your numbers so you can take control of your health.
