Archie LeJuene struggled to control his high blood pressure for years. He decided to take action and join Ochsner Digital Medicine in 2020 after reflecting on his family’s story. Archie’s father passed away from a stroke at a young age, and Archie says that he did not want to repeat that history with his daughter. He says that many men in his family are “hard-nosed” and “don’t want to go see a doctor,” but he knew that he needed to break that cycle. Since joining the program, Archie says his blood pressure is under control and he feels more hopeful about his future.
