May measurement month campaigns have always been one of my favorite parts of the year because during this time, I get to be part of the international volunteers who volunteer to screen individuals for hypertension whilst offering medical advice and referrals. This year with the support from the kenya cardiac society, my team at Stowelink Inc have once again taken up the challenge to screen and create awareness, education and referrals for cardiovascular health. We continue to engage in these screening activities encouraging active lifestyles and healthy diets as part of the preventive measures to reduce hypertension but also broadly to improve health status and prevent the other NCDs.
May Measurement Month (MMM) is a global awareness campaign initiated by the International Society of Hypertension (ISH), which represents the world’s leading scientists, clinicians, health care providers and allied health care workers, all with a common interest in hypertension (high blood pressure) research. Launched in May 2017, MMM put the spotlight on increasing access to blood pressure screening as potentially the most effective way to reduce hypertension’s adverse toll on health.
