Blood pressure screenings

High blood pressure means the force is too strong, and the heart is working extra hard to move the blood. Over time, high blood pressure can damage the heart, blood vessels, eyes and other organs. This makes regular blood pressure screenings of high importance. For details, call 810-744-0960. — T.T.
