21 Feb Kenny Vigil & Ryan Sanchez
Kenny Vigil is the Program Director for the Heart Disease and Stroke Prevention Program offered through the New Mexico Department of Health. Ryan Sanchez is a Health Educator with the program. They invite our listeners who have been diagnosed with High Blood Pressure (Hypertension) to join the YMCA Blood Pressure Self-Monitoring Program for FREE (SAVE $75) through February 28th. We talk about the importance of nutrition and exercise. Almost 80 million adults have high blood pressure in the United States. Less than 50% of these individuals have their blood pressure under control. To register for the program email firstname.lastname@example.org or call Lynn Umbreit at (505) 595-1515. Ryan Sanchez can be reached by email at Ryan.Sanchez@state.nm.us. Kenny is available by email at KennyC.Vigil@state.nm.us.
Our Nourished Nutrition Counselor, Jennifer Bryant, called into the show to share about her experience teaching nutrition in the program. She also emailed us the following links to a couple of “heart-healthy” New Mexican Food recipes.
