MONTEREY, Calif. —Free blood pressure checks and a talk about how to

sponsored by Community Hospital of the Monterey Peninsula. One in three adults
has high blood pressure — and 20 percent don’t even know it.
Richard Gray, MD, and Mike
Barber, RN, of Community Hospital’s Tyler Heart Institute, will talk about
lifestyle changes, medications, and other measures that can help prevent
hypertension and its life-threatening complications. The event is from
