If you’re struggling with hypertension, or high blood pressure, your Benefit Fund can help. Our free and confidential Hypertension Peer-to-Peer Mentoring Program, administered by InquisitHealth, can connect you with a fellow 1199SEIU member who is successfully managing his or her hypertension. In addition to the care you receive from your doctor, the program will offer support from a fellow member who can relate to what you are going through and offer ways to get your condition under control and lower your blood pressure. As part of the program, you’ll receive personalized coaching from your mentor by phone, advice from trained nutritionists to help you make healthy changes to your diet and a free digital blood pressure monitor so you can check your blood pressure at home. You’ll also learn how to use a smartphone app to track your progress and access educational materials.
If you have any questions or would like more information about the program, please call (646) 893-1348.
