Here are three great reasons to submit your application:

The Hypertension Control Challenge provides an opportunity to spread the word about your important achievements in blood pressure control. Whether you control blood pressure through smart use of health information technology, innovative communication techniques, or team-based approaches to patient care, we want to hear from you.
