Community-based blood pressure screening, education, and referral program
The American Heart Association and the Association of North Carolina Boards of Health (ANCBH) established in September 2022 a community-based blood pressure screening, education, and referral program in collaboration with local health departments in Guilford and Forsyth counties (Triad) to provide cardiovascular self-management options due to the lack of community education and wellness centers in communities.
