PACE Your Way to Health! - Group 5

  • Tuesday, April 16, 2024 -
About Event

The PACE program is designed to help prevent heart disease and high blood pressure in the African Americans by providing education on:

  • What affects our heart and blood pressure.
  • Introducing physical activities to get our bodies moving no matter the fitness level.
  • Learning how to make flavorful and nutritious foods that are healthy for the heart.

Since the PACE Program is focused on prevention, anyone who is 18 and older who has been told by a physician that they have high blood pressure unfortunately is not eligible to participate.

The PACE program is set up in three stages.

  • Stage 1: pre-registration, followed by a health screening and self-reporting and knowledge survey. 
  • Stage 2: A six-week heart education class, with physical activities and cooking/nutrition classes. The class meets once a week for 90 minutes (1.5 hours).
  • Stage 3: Completing health screenings and self-reporting and knowledge survey every 90-days.
