Abstract

Hypertension is the most common reason for health office visits in the US and for the use of prescription drugs. Many patients fail to truly understand the diagnosis of high blood pressure and the various health consequences that comes with poor regulation such as cardiovascular disease, stroke and renal disease. This project was aimed to increase patient education on the implications of hypertension and its complications.
