Even though Americans spend almost $10 billion a year on drugs to treat it, high blood pressure rates are soaring while guidelines keep recommending lower and lower goals for blood pressure control. Dr. Stafford will discuss how lifestyle changes are the most effective and safest “drug” to treat a condition that kills more than a thousand people every day. You’ll learn about the relationship between high blood pressure and chronic conditions like diabetes, obesity, and heart disease and get practical tips on how to improve your health and well-being.
