Molina’s Monthly Provider Engagement for May 2021
May is National Blood Pressure Education Month
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC):
- Nearly half of all adults in the United States have high blood pressure.
- Only about 1 in 4 adults (24%) with hypertension have their condition under control.
- High Blood Pressure was a primary or contributing cause of death in 2017 for more than 472,000 people in the United States. That’s nearly 1,300 deaths each day.
