Did you know
Nearly half of adults in the United States (47%, or 116 million) have hypertension, defined as a systolic blood pressure greater than 130 mm Hg or a diastolic blood pressure greater than 80 mm Hg, or are taking medication for hypertension. In 2020, more than 670,000 deaths in the United States had hypertension as a primary or contributing cause. Having high blood pressure puts you at risk for heart disease and stroke, which are the leading causes of death in the United States.
What would I need to do?
All participants will complete five clinic visits over 12-weeks. Once in the study, you will receive gift cards for your participation, and a free personalized dietary counseling session with a Registered Dietitian at the end of the study.
Visits are held at our clinic at 1440 Canal Street in New Orleans and there is free parking.
