Job Title: Marketing and Communications Director
The Blood Pressure Self-Monitoring program is a four-month program that includes 10-minute consultations with a Healthy Heart Ambassador during drop-in office hours, weekly check-ins from a Healthy Heart Ambassador by phone, email or text and monthly nutrition education seminars. Participants of the program are asked to attend two personalized consultations per month (office hours) and the monthly Nutrition Education Seminars.
The blood pressure self-monitoring program is an investment in your health and a commitment to reducing your risk for heart attack or stroke. One of the benefits of the blood pressure self-monitoring program is the support you will receive to develop the habit of self-monitoring to lower or better manage your blood pressure. The value is in investing in your own health to reduce your risk for heart disease.
