High blood pressure (hypertension) affects about 74.5 million people in the United States age 20 and older. This disease is often referred to as the “silent killer” because it can damage the heart, brain, eyes and kidneys before it is noticed. According to the American Heart Association more than 75 percent of those affected are unaware of their condition.

What You Need to Know About Prevention and Treatment of High Blood Pressure.” In this free program Dr. Dreiling will discuss important information about prevention, diagnosis and the latest recommended treatment strategies.

The program will be Monday, March 15, 6:30-7:30 p.m. This is the first in a free heart health series. “Understanding Heart Failure” will be Monday, April 12, 6:30-7:30 p.m. and “Lowering High Cholesterol” will be presented Tuesday, May 11, 6:30-7:30 p.m. All programs will take place at Lawrence Memorial Hospital, 325 Maine.
