- Hypertension Communications Kit: Health professionals can share these social media messages, graphics, and resources to educate their audiences about hypertension.
- Hypertension Patient Education Handouts: These fact sheets and handouts can help patients understand how hypertension affects their health and how to make healthy lifestyle changes.
- Hypertension Tools and Training: These materials can help health professionals develop and support programs for preventing and managing hypertension.
