REACH FAR Toolkit

High blood pressure is treatable and heart disease can be prevented!

You can help your community prevent and control high blood pressure (HBP) by increasing options for healthy eating, physical activity; and encouraging community members to monitor their blood pressure whether done so at home or in clinical and community settings with trained healthcare professionals with appropriate devices.


Healthy Eating Toolkit

This toolkit outlines how REACH FAR community partners increased access to healthier foods and drinks in places of worship, ethnic grocery stores and restaurants.

 


Blood Pressure Monitoring Toolkit

This toolkit outlines how REACH FAR community partners carried out NYC DOHMH’s Keep on Track blood pressure monitoring program and HHS’s Million Hearts Initiative ® in places of worship, community providers’ offices, and local pharmacy settings to prevent and control high blood pressure and improve heart health!

 

Both these toolkits provide guidance and resources for individuals, community based organizations, places of worship, academic research centers and any other types of organizations interested in ways to prevent high blood pressure and cardiovascular disease, especially for those working with Asian Americans in community settings.

Health promotion materials are available in English and seven Asian languages: Bengali, Hindi, Nepali, Punjabi, Korean, Tagalog, Urdu.
