SPECIAL THIS MONTH

High Blood Pressure Education Month

National High Blood Pressure Education Month marks the “kickoff” of high blood pressure prevention and control activities for the year. The National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI) launched the first “Month” campaign in May 1974. About 100 national organizations cooperated in the campaign and over 200 organizations coordinated activities in their communities during the month.


NHLBI invites community groups, civic and faith-based organizations, hospital outreach programs, public health departments, and workplaces to renew activities to prevent and control high blood pressure. Below is a list of NHLBI resources that program planners may use in their activities for National High Blood Pressure Education Month:

Coaches Corner

To become engaged readers, kids need to see themselves in books. Therefore, this week's engagement strategy highlights the "How Do I Feel?" question by providing a resource shared by Marshall Memo for educators to find books that feature diverse topics, content, and characters that reflect the diversity of the students and the schools we work in.
