Recently, one of our Community Health Workers (CHW) received an update from a client who had been
screened for high blood pressure in August 2018. During the screening the client’s numbers presented
as Stage 2 Hypertensive on the “Know Your Numbers” high blood pressure scale developed by the
American Heart Association. Our CHW encouraged the client to schedule an appointment with his
primary care provider to follow up on his results. Later, as our CHW was on her lunch break, she was
approached by the client and he informed her that he had seen his provider and that after incorporating
healthier eating habits and eliminating smoking from his daily life, his numbers had gone down.
