Binghamton University’s Healthy Campus Initiative is spearheading a collaboration with the American Heart Association and UHS to offer a free, voluntary, evidence-based wellness and blood pressure management program called Check. Change. Control.
Unfortunately, we are no longer able to offer any on-campus blood pressure screening sites and the AHA is not promoting the use of public BP devices. However, for individuals that do need to keep checking their BP, have access to personal devices and/or have updated readings from their health care provider, the website will still be able to take BP readings and act as a resource. Please continue to submit your blood pressure readings.
All of the AHA tools and resources are still available on-line. The AHA is actively assessing opportunities for more virtual engagement focusing on lifestyle changes and healthy things you can do at home. Please watch for more updates via email.
In the meantime, Healthy Campus will continue to send out bi-weekly AHA Check It! Challenge educational resources including lifestyle management techniques and considerations for improving your blood pressure. Managing stress, engaging in physical activity and eating well are important year round, and especially in times of change.
We appreciate your participation and perseverance. Stay well. If you have any questions or concerns, please email us at email@example.com.

March's focus: Eating Smart and Adding Color
March is National Nutrition Month. All fruits and vegetables contain vitamins, minerals and other nutrients that may help prevent heart disease, cancer and other illnesses.
The American Heart Association has a wonderful array of easy to understand resources to help you understand all the aspects of heart health, blood pressure management and lifestyle factors.
