Hypertension is the most common condition seen in primary care. Did you know that residents of Tennessee, Mississippi, Arkansas and Alabama are more likely to have hypertension than those in other states? Surprisingly, many children in the Mid-South develop hypertension in their youth. If a kid develops high blood pressure, it's likely the child will continue to have high blood pressure as an adult.
Hypertension is often not felt and can lead to heart attack, stroke, kidney failure, and death if not detected early and treated appropriately. Help us to spread the message by participating in the 4th annual Healthy Shelby 5k!
All Shelby County Government employees who register will be placed in a drawing! One lucky winner will be given the opportunity to have lunch with Mayor Mark H. Luttrell, Jr.
