prevention program will be available on Thursday, March 9th,  from 1:00 to 3:00 pm at

pressure only screening will be held at Borough Hall from 10:00 – 12:00 noon.

Contrary to popular belief, most people with high blood pressure do not feel sick

or have symptoms that would alert them to the fact that their blood pressure is high.

Therefore it is important to have your blood pressure checked, Mrs. Migliaccio added.

Hypertension can be treated and controlled by your physician.

Board of Health member, Lisette Mena invites residents to take advantage of

these important health services.
