Public Presentation on High Blood Pressure


Anita Schiltz, ARNP, will speak about high blood pressure during a free public presentation at the Ellensburg Adult Activity Center.

Anita will discuss the basics of high blood pressure, including what blood pressure numbers mean, the consequences of high blood pressure and the importance of treatment.

She will also talk about lifestyle modifications that can reduce the risk of developing high blood pressure like getting enough exercise and quitting smoking.  In addition, she will outline a heart healthy diet.  Research has shown that a high sodium diet can affect blood pressure.  Anita will show attendees what to look for on nutrition labels to help limit salt intake. 

Anita joined KVH Internal Medicine in September 2016.  She enjoys caring for adult and geriatric patients, and most recently worked at The Polyclinic in Seattle.  Anita earned her Master of Science in nursing from Hunter College in New York, NY.  In her spare time, she enjoys skiing, gardening, golfing, mountaineering, and ultramarathon running.

The presentation will be held at the Ellensburg Adult Activity Center on April 21 beginning at 11:30 a.m.  If you are interesting in attending, please call (509) 962-7242 to reserve a seat.
