Blood Pressure Self-Monitoring Program (BPSMP)

Program Overview

The YMCA’s Blood Pressure Self-Monitoring Program (BPSMP) is a four-month, evidence-based program designed to help participants with hypertension better manage their blood pressure by developing the habit of self-monitoring and tracking their blood pressure. Participants work with trained Healthy Heart Ambassadors for the duration of the program and are encouraged to measure and record their own blood pressure at least two times per month; attend two personalized “Office Hour” consultations; and attend one Nutrition Education Seminar each month.
