February is Heart Month: Supporting Your Patients with High Blood Pressure

Our Million Hearts® Initiative partners have tips on important blood pressure questions to ask your patients during their next visit.

Want to learn more? Participate in an Interactive Virtual Town Hall on Resistant Hypertension. 

Resistant hypertension is high blood pressure that does not respond well to aggressive medical treatment. It substantially increases the risk of heart attack, stroke and kidney failure.

Join HRSA for an interactive Virtual Town Hall on this topic. Oscar H. Cingolani, M.D., Director of the Center for Resistant Hypertension at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, will explore contributing factors such as gender, race, genetic disparities, and social determinants associated with resistant hypertension. He will share evidence-based promising practices for treatment and control. You can join health centers in the interactive portion to share your experiences and ask questions about treating patients with this condition.

Addressing Hard-to-Control Hypertension: Let Us Count the Ways, Tuesday, February 25, 12 noon- 1:30 p.m. MST. Register here.
