Date:9/12/2007

nce of hypertension is 40.5% among non-Hispanic blacks, 27.4% for non-Hispanic whites, and 25.1% among Mexican Americans.

In addition to Hispanic Heritage Month hypertension screening events in San Ysidro, CA, Miami, FL, New York, NY, and San Antonio, TX, the Alliance announced the availability of personalized free information by calling the Alliance's Su Familia National Hispanic Family Health Helpline (1-866-SU- FAMILIA or 1-866-783-2645). Callers can get basic information on hypertension and referral to health care providers where they live. In addition, as part of Hispanic Heritage Month, the Alliance is offering callers a free pocket- card for tracking their blood pressure, including key questions patients should ask their health care provider about hypertension.

According to Dr. Delgado, "knowing your blood pressure is one of the most important steps you can take para su salud."
