sur-Saône | Chalon. World Hypertension Day: Take Free Screening Test This Friday

The William-Maury Hospital Center in Chalon-sur-Saône is organizing a screening and public awareness day this Friday, May 17, to mark World Hypertension Day. Screening for cardiovascular disease risk factors, assistance in using a blood pressure monitor, or advice on diet and physical activity will be included in the promotion program free of charge and without prior registration.

High blood pressure, characterized by an abnormal increase in blood pressure in the walls of the arteries, is a condition “often asymptomatic, it is a major risk factor for cardiovascular disease and affects one in three adults, or almost 17 million French people.” explains Sylvain Rollot, director of the general secretariat of the regional hospital group of Saône-et-Loire. “50% of people with this pathology are unaware of it, and 50% of treated patients are poorly controlled. That’s why the hospital center offers this awareness and screening day. »

Free and without an appointment, from 9:00 to 17:00 in the hall of the William-Maury Hospital Center, 4 rue du Capitan-Drillen, in Chalon-sur-Saône.
