If you are living with high blood pressure, taking action to keep it well controlled will minimize your risk for complications like stroke, heart attack, and even death. The simple process of checking your blood pressure at least twice a month over a period of four months has shown to lower blood pressure in many people with high blood pressure. This forms the basis for the YMCA’s Blood Pressure Self-Monitoring Program, an evidence based program that features personalized support as you develop the habit of routinely self-monitoring your blood pressure, tips for maintaining your cardiovascular health, and nutrition education.

Healthy Weight and Your Child is a 25-session evidence-based program for children with obesity. The program includes a Family Information Session followed by 25 sessions delivered over four months. The family-based weight-management program focuses on nutrition education and physical activity to encourage healthier eating habits and an active lifestyle to reach a healthy weight.
The program is designed with the whole family in mind, engaging a child and adult in education, healthy eating and physical activity to elicit positive change and help families learn skills to live a healthier lifestyle long-term. Evidence shows that child weight-management programs are more effective when the whole family is involved and committed to adopting healthier habits.
