Your support will help this life-saving program expand – fighting high blood pressure in our community
The Medicine Ball event is held every other year. This year, we support the Blood Pressure Ambassadors program by simply appealing to our loyal donors. Next year, look for another amazing Medicine Ball experience.
The Blood Pressure Ambassador Program was developed by the Christiana Care Center for Heart & Vascular Health to increase awareness of the consequences of untreated high blood pressure in the community.
The program’s goal is to reach at-risk individuals in their neighborhoods and improve cardiovascular health. Blood pressure screenings by specially trained community volunteers identify high-risk individuals and provide opportunities to provide health information and motivate individuals to take action with their health.
Funds raised for the Blood Pressure Ambassador Program will go directly to recruiting more ambassadors for medically underserved populations, to purchase additional equipment and screeening supplies and for education and post-screening materials.
