National analysis identifies Columbus as one of the Hypertension Hot Spots in the U.S.

November 12, 2017

The Commit to Control exhibit will visit the Columbus 10TV Health & Fitness Expo on Aug. 20-21. To motivate residents to control their high blood pressure, the exhibit will offer free blood pressure screenings and the opportunity to see the effects hypertension can have on the body through an animated 3-D simulation. The tour schedule and additional resources on how patients can take steps toward managing their hypertension are available on wwwmitToControl. Site visitors can also see a full list of the 50 Hypertension Hot Spots and make an online pledge to talk to their doctors about controlling hypertension. For each pledge made online, Takeda will donate $5, up to $10,000, to Mended Hearts, a community-based, nationwide heart patient support network.
