YMCA Blood Pressure Self-Monitoring Program (BPSM)
The virtual four-month YMCA BPSM program offers personal support for members to build skills that help them manage high blood pressure, notice and control triggers that raise blood pressure, and eat healthier. Studies show that taking your blood pressure at least twice a month for four months lowers your blood pressure. Twice a month, participants attend the program and receive personal coaching, as well as attend monthly nutrition meetings.
Eligibility Requirements: The program is available to Carolina Complete Health members age 18 years or older who have been diagnosed with high blood pressure. Participants cannot have had a recent cardiac event, have atrial fibrillation or other arrhythmias, or be at risk for lymphedema.
Note: Please allow a minimum of 14 days for review and processing of your request. If you need immediate support, please call us at 1-833-552-3876 (TTY 711).
