Guard against the “Silent Killer” 

Blood pressure screeningFannin County Health Department is offering Free Blood Pressure Screening on Monday, December 18 from 9 to 11 AM. The health department is located at 95 Ouida Street in Blue Ridge, GA. No appointment is necessary. High blood pressure raises your risk for heart disease and stroke, which are leading causes of death in the United States.1 High blood pressure is called the “silent killer” because it often has no warning signs or symptoms and many people do not know they have it. The only way to know is to have your blood pressure checked by a healthcare professional. If it is too high, then steps can be taken to control it through diet, exercise and other lifestyle changes or, if needed, with medication. For more information, call the Fannin County Health Department at (706) 632-3023.
