The Student Club (Girls Section) launched on Monday 13th Rajab 1438H at the headquarters of the Health Colleges (Girls Section) an awareness campaign on cardiovascular system health and high blood pressure in the human body. The campaign was concerned with raising awareness of female students and staff members about the concept of the cardiovascular system in the human body and ways to preserve the heart health by eating healthy foods and practicing suitable sports for the safety of blood pressure.     

The campaign included a video presentation showing the concept of blood pressure and its relation to heart health and vascular integrity.

Then, the students explained the method of measuring blood pressure. They actually measured blood pressure for some of the female attendees, and introduced them to the types of foods that played a significant role in high blood pressure.

Therefore, the significance of the campaign lies in the fact that negligence in the treatment of high blood pressure leads to serious complications, and increases the risk of heart, stroke and arterial diseases.
