About National Women’s Blood Pressure Awareness Week

National Women’s Blood Pressure Awareness Week is a weeklong observance led by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Office on Women’s Health. The observance, which will take place October 16-22, 2022, will highlight the importance of blood pressure control and monitoring, with an emphasis on resources women can use in their own communities to maintain a healthy blood pressure and improve their overall heart health. In this Fact Sheet, we have included a few ideas on how you can help us get the word out about this year’s theme – “Healthy Hearts, Healthy Communities!” — and how you can showcase the resources available right in your community to combat high blood pressure.
