Founding Member of CDC National Hypertension Control Roundtable

Record Levels

With hypertension reaching record levels, PyrAmes has joined with the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) in the formation of the National Hypertension Control Roundtable. The Roundtable was formed in 2020 along with 50 other organizations committed to reversing this trend. Nearly half of adults in the US suffer from hypertension, but only about 1 in 4 cases are well-managed. The US Surgeon General has issued a “Call to Action” to make hypertension control a national priority and to optimize patient care for hypertension.
