Healthy Shelby's 140/90: Living Life Under Pressure Campaign

Did You Know That:

  • Hypertension affects 1 in 5 adults, and only 50% of affected individuals have their condition under control
  • Uncontrolled high blood pressure can cause serious health issues including heart disease, stroke and even death.

Healthy Shelby recently launched the “140/90: Living Life Under Pressure” Hypertension Awareness Campaign to educate the community on the importance of blood pressure control. In order to prevent the debilitating consequences of hypertension, the campaign promotes blood pressure screening, dietary modification, regular exercise, medication adherence, and physician consultation. Through this initiative Healthy Shelby aims to improve the control and management of high blood pressure among Shelby County residents.

MBGH members, CEO Culture of Health Participants and other employers can support the 140/90 campaign by sharing this important information with employees and their families. Feel free to use the following campaign materials in your next employee newsletter or share them on your intranet, website, or bulletin board.
