This February, Dr. Yallapragada, incoming board president of the Midlands, and Dr. Brent Eagan, incoming board president of the Upstate, shared their knowledge of stroke and blood pressure by presenting to local communities in the Mid-Atlantic Affiliate.
Dr. Eagan traveled to Baltimore, MD to present to area Federally Qualified Health Centers about Target: BP. In addition to giving an overview of the Target: BP program, Dr. Eagan shared the success of Target: BP initiatives in South Carolina.
In the Midlands, Dr. Yallapragada presented about stroke risk at Still Hopes Episcopal Retirement Community. Still Hopes engages with AHA in many ways like participating in the Heart Walk and in Workplace Health Solutions. This was a great way to give back while helping to educate that community.
