World hypertension Day 2010 “Preventing Hypertension–Hiking Go! Go! Go!”

Organized by the Taiwan Heart Foundation, the Taiwan Society of Cardiology, and the Department of Health, Taipei City Government, this event will be held on Sunday, May 16 2010, from 7:30am to 10am. The theme for this year's World Hypertension Day is “Healthy Weight”, to introduce the concept that there is a correlation between healthy weight and healthy blood pressure.
Through this event, we hope to educate the public on the link between our waist measure, weight, and blood sugar level with our blood pressure. At the event, volunteers will help measure participants' waist and blood pressure. We ask everyone to join us in the fight to keep a healthy weight and a stable blood pressure.
(This event is part of the Wellness Card point redeem program)
