Controlling Blood Pressure in Barbershops

Uncontrolled high blood pressure is one of the main causes of premature disability and death among African-American men, who do not have as much interaction with doctors compared to women, necessitating this kind of community-based intervention. Healthcare given by a pharmacist in the local barbershop has been found to effectively lower high blood pressure in African American patients, according to a recent study conducted by Smidt Heart Institute.
