Controlling High Blood Pressure Technical Assistance


High blood pressure is a key risk factor for heart disease, which is the leading cause of death for men and the second leading cause of death for women in Oregon (Oregon Health Authority, Public Health Division, Vital Statistics, 2022; data not available for other genders at this time). CCOs have an important role in helping Oregonians control high blood pressure and reduce their chance of dying from heart attack or stroke.
