High Blood Pressure & High Cholesterol Toolkit
African American men are at high risk for heart disease and stroke. This handy toolkit was created by the Ohio Department of Health in collaboration with Ohio physicians for use by the community. It is a tool that focuses in on high blood pressure and cholesterol and was designed with African American men, as well as their loved ones, in mind. The toolkit includes brief testimonials from Black men, information about the impact of heart disease, tip sheets, trackers, and risk assessments.
The tip sheets provide important and useful information:
- Questions to ask the doctor
- Medication question to discuss with the doctor
- Facts about high blood pressure and cholesterol in African Americans
- How to improve blood pressure and cholesterol numbers
- Additional resources.
