Strong Heart Foundation
We provide monitoring equipment and training to barbershops which allow them to screen their customers for Hypertension and Atrial Fibrillation. These diseases, which are often without symptoms, claim millions of lives every year and destroy families with their debilitating effects.
With its roots in Boynton Beach, Florida, the Strong Heart Foundation is working to spread aross the country and the world with the assistance of concerned healthcare workers and barbers in other communities. We welcome your support and participation.
Hypertension and AFib
Hypertension is an elevation in blood pressure. It is a disease that has no symptoms while slowly causing damage to the heart and blood vessels, often leading to heart failure, heart attacks and stroke.
Atrial fibrillation is an abnormal and irregular rhythm of the heart. It is a disease that can also occur without the persons knowledge. Untreated, Atrial Fibrillation is responsible for a higher incidence of stroke and heart failure than occurs when a person has a regular rhythm.
