Hypertension Campaign Kicks Off Healthy Washington County Project

What's Your Number? Hypertension Campaign Heart disease remains an ongoing health concern for our local community. State data regularly notes that the heart disease mortality rate in Washington County is significantly higher than both the Maryland and national baselines.

Experts agree that controlling blood pressure is an effective method of reducing premature cardiovascular morbidity and mortality. To raise awareness of the importance of regular blood pressure checks, What’s Your Number?, a project of HealthyWashingtonCounty.com, is kicking off locally with the help of three founding partners - the Herald-Mail, Meritus Health and Washington County Public Schools.
