MONTEREY, Calif. —Free blood pressure checks and a talk about how to prevent or control high blood pressure are being offered during an event 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 5:30-6:30 p.m. Thursday, July 26 at Peninsula Wellness Center, 2920 2nd Avenue, Marina. Tours of the wellness center will also be offered.
