On World Hypertension Day, Joaquim Chaves Saúde promoted hypertension screenings at Alegro Sintra, CascaiShopping and Joaquim Chaves Fitness.

These screenings were fundamental, as vigilance and prevention continue to be powerful weapons against the negative effects of this condition.

Measuring blood pressure remains one of the most effective ways of assessing the risk of a serious cardiac event, one of the main causes of death in our country.
