National Day of Action 2014
As part of our efforts during May’s National High Blood Pressure Education Month, the American Medical Group Foundation hosted the inaugural Measure Up/Pressure Down® National Day of Action: Roll Up Your Sleeves! on May 15, 2014.
On this National Day of Action, 70 Measure Up/Pressure Down® supporters rolled up their sleeves and joined together in their respective communities and participated in at least one action to raise awareness of high blood pressure to patients, providers, employees, or the general public.
