May Measerment month is a global public screening programme for hypertension. It not only aims to raise public awareness of hypertension and its effects but also to collect data that will inform global health policy. More can be found out at the May Measurement Month Website: http://maymeasure.com/
We aim to reach one million blood pressure readings from the public in the UK this May. We also aim to increases public awareness of hypertension and it's treatment in the UK.
May Measurement Month is made possible by the hard work of a huge number of volunteers. All blood pressure readings are recorded by volunteers, and the UK team is ran by students working together from universities around the whole of the UK.
The English effort is led by Manchester Medical Research Society
