The Pressure Is on for African Americans with Hypertension
Date:6/10/2009

to their external pressures.

"Elevated blood pressure in the African American community has been prevalent for quite some time, and minimized such that this treatable condition continues to result in catastrophes such as stroke and endstage renal disease," said ABC Board member Icilma Fergus, M.D., Chief of Cardiology at Harlem Hospital Center in Harlem, New York. "The survey findings reaffirm the critical need for African Americans to work with their doctors and focus attention on their heart health, making sure it remains a priority in their lives. That's why we're partnering with Daiichi Sankyo to launch this campaign and ignite the high blood pressure conversation within the African American community."

As part of the 'My Pressure Points' campaign, the Association of Black Cardiologists and Daiichi Sankyo, Inc. have unveiled new resources at www.mypressurepoints.com which may help African Americans take a more proactive approach to controlling their blood pressure. The web site has practical advice for controlling and delaying the onset of high blood pressure as well as culturally relevant tips for eating healthier and increasing physical activity. Results from the My Pressure Points national online survey conducted in 2009 of over 500 African Americans with high blood pressure (age 18 and older) and 150 doctors who treat African Americans with hypertension, are also available. Additionally, people can log on to take the survey and see how their responses compare to the national results.

"As a leader in global cardiovascular health, Daiichi Sankyo is committed to providing the most up-to-date, comprehensive educational resources for people who are at increased risk for high blood pressure and cardiovascular disease, such as African Americans," said Jonathon Jaffe, M.D., FACC, Senior Medical Director, Hypertension
