Blood Pressure Monitor Lending Program
Each participant in the Hypertension track will have a blood pressure monitor lent to them for the duration of the program.

Patients will either receive their blood pressure monitor at our North Highlands clinic or our Franklin clinic, courtesy of SMUD and the American Heart Association.
