On May 21, Lewis Public Relations and our other Public Relations Global Network (PRGN) offices will be working to support Carrington College’s attempt to break the GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS™ for most blood pressure checks within an eight hour period. Blood Pressure Infographic - Carrington College - How Common

The American Heart Association calls high blood pressure a “silent killer” because it is typically symptom-free. According to the Center for Disease Control, 1 of every 3 adults in the U.S. has high blood pressure, but only about half of those 70 million Americans have it under control.

To celebrate National High Blood Pressure Education Month, 17 campuses within the Carrington College network are partnering together to increase local communities’ knowledge about blood pressure and provide education about health risks associated with both pre-hypertension and hypertension.

Kicking off Carrington’s Mesquite campus blood pressure check, there will be a special guest from the American Heart Association, located here in Dallas. As this theme directly correlates to its mission, Carrington College is excited to partner with this great cause!

Come by to see us tomorrow between 1-9 p.m. at Carrington College, 3733 West Emporium Circle, Mesquite, Texas 75150.

Knowing your numbers can help save your life. You can read more about it in the Mesquite News and Carrington College’s blog, “Everything You Need To Know About Blood Pressure.”

You can follow along with Carrington’s tracker for the event at CarringtonBreaksRecords.com. Also, check out what's going on in other markets with our partner PRGN offices in Phoenix, San Francisco and Seattle.

Spread the word and educate yourself! Engage with Carrington College, #CarringtonBreaksRecords, and American Heart Association, #CheckItDFW.

Will you help us break this world record? It may save your life!
