On Thursday, May 16, 2019, the Florida Department of Health in Orange County has scheduled a documentary screening and panel discussion in observance of National Hypertension Education Month. Starting at 5:30 pm, the event will be held at the Saint Mark African Methodist Episcopal Church, 1968 Bruton Boulevard, Orlando, FL 32805.

During the month of May, the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute challenges Americans to participate in a national pledge to #MoveWithHeart to help reduce their risk of high blood pressure (hypertension).
Why move more? Being active can:
- Protect your heart (even if you have heart disease)
- Improve blood flow
- Lower blood pressure and cholesterol levels
- Give you more stamina and ability to cope with stress
