Dear Orems,

Just a word of thanks to you and Colo for getting this going. Hopefully Villagers and Nigerians both at home and diaspora will avail themselves of this unique opportunity.

Thanks again.

Educate us on the importance of monitoring HBP, the silent killer of so many black people. I always tell my friends to check theirs because a healthy looking individual may have the shadowy malady trailing them. In my workplace preventive measures are very strong in every aspect, and I have seen strong looking blacks with low level HBP. I have taken upon myself to keep fit to lower my chances of getting it. As they say, prevention is better than cure. Over to you, Orems and Colo.

This thread is an introductory one. Do you mind re-posting your question on High Blood pressure as a subject of a new topic.

Thanks and welcome to the village
