Omron And The American Heart Association
At the Consumer Electronics Show in January 2016, Omron Healthcare previewed its new blood pressure monitoring tools and announced it will donate 400 upper-arm blood pressure monitors to the American Heart Association.
The monitors, worth $20,000, will be distributed to communities and programs in need.
“The American Heart Association is thrilled to receive this generous donation from Omron Healthcare at CES 2016, and to see them drive awareness about hypertension,” said Dr. Willie E. Lawrence, Jr., for The American Heart Association. “One-third of Americans have high blood pressure, and 20 percent of them don’t even know they have this major risk factor for heart disease and stroke. Initiatives and gifts like Omron’s are important for helping people reduce their risk for cardiovascular disease and, essentially, saving lives.”
