American Heart Month

On the first Friday of February 2019, members of the St. Louis (MO) Chapter wore red to the February Chapter meeting as the official kick off to American Heart Month. During the meeting, several Links had their blood pressure checked by Health and Human Services Facet Chair, Arlene Moore Ross. Knowing your blood pressure is critically important. The higher your blood pressure is, the higher your risk of a heart attack or a stroke. The best way to know whether or not you have high blood pressure is to have your blood pressure checked regularly. Know your numbers!
