 Evening Blood Pressure Screening/Informational Table
Sponsored By:  Carilion New River Valley Medical Center
Location:  Recreation Center Lobby
Additional Information: Do you know your numbers?  Blood pressure consists of two numbers.  Your systolic pressure measures the pressure of blood against artery walls when the heart pumps blood out during a heartbeat, while the diastolic pressure measures the same pressure between heartbeats when the heart fills with blood.  Both of these numbers are important and just because one is normal doesn’t mean you’re off the hook.  Come get checked!
