Watch CDC Public Health Grand Rounds on Hypertension on May 21

The "Hypertension: Detect, Connect, Control" session of CDC Public Health Grand Rounds on Tuesday, May 21at 11am (MT) will explore hypertension, or high blood pressure.

Having high blood pressure increases the risk for cardiovascular disease, the leading cause of death in the United States. Nearly 800,000 people die in the United States each year from cardiovascular disease, which is 1 out of every 3 deaths.

Registration is not required to watch the live webcast of Grand Rounds; however, you must register for continuing education credits.

High blood pressure management is a key strategy of the Million Hearts Initiative, an effort to prevent 1 million heart attacks and strokes over five years. Colorado participates in this initiative and you can too. Be one in a million - make your commitment and pledge today.
