2016 National Day of Action: Roll Up Your Sleeves! (Thursday, May 5)

The Measure Up/Pressure Down® National Day of Action: Roll Up Your Sleeves! is celebrated each May during National High Blood Pressure Education Month.  On this one day – Thursday, May 5, 2016 – we ask Measure Up/Pressure Down® supporters and other organizations to roll up their sleeves and take an “action” to increase awareness, detection, or control of high blood pressure in their community. These actions can take different forms, based on your audience, capabilities, and resources.
