Welcome to the Check. Change. Control. Leadership Community, where our mission is to help 13.4 million more Americans take control of their high blood pressure by 2020.

We've brought together leaders across the healthcare, pharmaceutical, device, retail, and technology industries, along with key players in community health, to work together to propose solutions to one of our nation's most threatening health emergencies.

By participating in this community with your ideas, expertise, and commitment to helping more Americans control their blood pressure, you are helping the American Heart Association, the American Stroke Association and all of our partners take an important step closer to success.
