 Join the South Los Angeles Food Co-Op (SoLa) on Saturday, November 15, from 2-4 p.m., for a free high blood pressure awareness workshop at the Baldwin Hills Library community room at 2906 S. La Brea Ave, Los Angeles CA 90016.

 This workshop will provide information on ways to use physical activity, proper screenings and healthy foods to support cardiovascular well-being. The workshop will include a healthy cooking demo and tasting by Doula Cooks’ Chef Hawk, yogic practices for stress reduction taught by Iyengar yoga instructor Pagan George, and an informative blood pressure presentation by Certified Advanced Health and Wellness Specialist Greg Hernandez.

According to the American Heart Association, cardiovascular disease is the number one cause of death among African American women and men. A major contributing factor to cardiovascular disease is high blood pressure, which is especially high among African Americans and certain Latino populations in Los Angeles.  If left untreated, high blood pressure, better know as the silent killer, can lead to heart disease, stroke and kidney disease.

The workshop is free and open to the public, but RSVPs are strongly encouraged. To RSVP or to get additional event information, please email Jade Stevens at [email protected]. This workshop is funded by The Pollination Project, a non-profit organization that provides grants to individual change-makers every day of the year.
