Free Blood Pressure Checks Offered in Thorp
There are often no symptoms for high blood pressure, so it is often called the silent killer. The disease occurs most often in people over the age of 35. In general, the older a person is, the greater his or her chances of developing high blood pressure.
Ministry Home Care is providing free blood pressure checks at Morgan Plaza, 113 East Lawrence Street in Thorp on the third Tuesday of every other month. The next BP Check will be held Tuesday, August 19, 11:30 a.m. - 12:30 p.m. No appointment is necessary, and there is no cost.
For more information, call Ministry Home Care at 800.397.0270.
