African-Americans have the highest recorded rates of hypertension in both the United States and the world. As a result, the American Heart Association is launching “Get To Goal: The Detroit Hypertension Initiative” to help lower hypertension among African-Americans.  It kicks-off with a luncheon Saturday, Feb 2nd from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Shriners Silver Garden Events Center, 24350 Southfield Road in Southfield.

This event is free with RSVP!

The “Get To Goal” program will focus on increasing physical activity, healthier eating and managing high blood pressure through education, tracking and coaching.  Teams of 15 people or more receive blood pressure screenings twice a month for four months and log their numbers online or via text message or phone. Special incentives such as cooking demos will be offered to help participants attain their health goal.
