MAY WILL BE HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE MONTH In observance of May as "National High Blood Pres- sure Month," the Alabama Heart Association and the Ala- bama Department of Public Health will conduct a screen- ing program for members of the State Legislature. Also participating in the program is the Alabama Academy of Fa- mily Practice. According Richard O. Russell, Jr., ~ I • D., Birming- ham, President of the Alabama Heart Association, the screen- thg will be held on May 5th from 9:30 - 3:30 at the State Capitol in Montgomery• Volunteer nurses, who are members of the Montgomery County Division of the Ala- bama Heart Association, will be available to do readings and for counseling those whose blood pressure is elevated. Dr. Russell pointed out that "one in every ten Americans has high blood pressure, and be- cause the disease produces no unique symptoms, half of those with high blood pressure are unaware of it. It can, of course, lead to stroke, heart attack or kidney failure." He urged all Alabamians to take advantage of free blood pressure screening sites that will be set up throughout the State during May. According to Dr. Russell, "the key to controlling high blood pressure is finding those with the problem.and convinc- ing them to see their physician for treatment." The Alabama Heart Associa- tion is cooperating with the Ala- bama Advisory and Coordinat- ing Council on Hypertension and other State organizations in promoting May as "National High Blood Pressure Month."
