prevention program will be available on Thursday, March 8th,  from 1:00 to 3:00 pm at

pressure only screening will be held at Borough Hall from 9:30 – 11:00 am.

            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.
