Shop-to-Stop Hypertension

Shop-to-Stop Hypertension is a 12-month public screening and research study run by The George Institute, University of New South Wales and SiSU Health. This innovative, community-facing project is designed to detect and manage raised blood pressure in adult Australians, whilst also raising population-wide awareness of hypertension.
