76.4 million adults have been diagnosed with high blood pressure in the
United States. High blood pressure is a major risk factor for heart
attack, stroke and heart and kidney failure. “It is vital that everyone
in our community knows and understands what their blood pressure is. An
abnormal blood pressure reading should not be treated lightly; we
provide education about potential health consequences. If someone has
an abnormal reading, we strongly recommend that they see their primary
care physician and if they do not have physician, we provide them with
physician referral information” comments Modera.
Free blood pressure screenings are also held the second Tuesday of each
month in the Acute Rehabilitation Unit Dining Room at Geneva General
Hospital from 1-3 p.m. The entrance and parking is at the rear of the
hospital. For more information call Diana Modera at (315)787-4464.
For physician referral information call (315) 787-4060.
