Throughout the month of February, AdventHealth Gordon offered free blood pressure clinics and heart health seminars across Gordon County.
Community outreach director Tracy Farriba and the AdventHealth Gordon community outreach team held events at local churches, the Gordon County Senior Center and at a leadership meeting for Gordon County Schools for school leaders. The team also provided educational materials to promote heart health for both preventing and addressing cardiac emergencies.
“Keeping your eye on your blood pressure is a necessary first step in knowing a snapshot about what’s going on with your heart and note if there are any changes over time. If I see a number that is concerning, I always tell participants to follow up with their primary care provider,” said Farriba.
