Croí will host a webinar with leading experts to discuss how to manage high blood pressure at the end of April.

Expert guest speakers on Thursday, April 28th from 7pm to 8pm will include GP and Professor of General Practice at NUI Galway Prof Andrew Murphy and Physiotherapist and Dietitian Eoin Keating.

The interactive panel discussion will address questions on living with high blood pressure and the event is in recognition of World Hypertension Day on May 17th.

Dr Lisa Hynes, Croí’s Head of Health Programmes, said that uncontrolled high blood pressure increases people’s risk of heart disease and stroke.

“It’s startling to know that Ireland has one of the highest rates of high blood pressure internationally, but among the lowest levels of diagnosis, treatment and control of the condition. Join us and connect with the experts at this free Croí webinar,” she said.
