Blood pressure is a measure of how hard your blood is pushing against the walls of your blood vessels. High blood pressure can increase your risk for heart problems such as a stroke or heart attack.
Atlantis Pharmacy wants to keep you healthy and can measure your blood pressure.
Fee to administer test: FREE!
Plus, expertly trained pharmacists provide counseling on what the numbers mean and ways to lower the numbers through lifestyle changes.

According to the American Heart Association a normal blood pressure is <120/80 mmHg
