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. 

The documentary is “High Blood Pressure: A State of Emergency in the African American Community.” 

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 

For more information, please call the Florida Department of Health in Orange County at 407-858-1400.
