February 8, 2019 (San Diego) - It’s February – the time of year when our attention turns to matters of the heart. What better time to get your blood pressure checked?

On Thursday, Feb. 14, people can get their blood pressure checked for free at any of nearly 300 locations across the U.S. and Mexico for Love Your Heart Day. Many faith-based organizations are getting in on the action by hosting blood pressure checks this weekend on Feb. 9 and 10.
