The Michigan Department of Community Health has put together a great resource, High Blood Pressure University, which links to resources all about hypertension. The links are divided into three campuses:
- Professionals for medical providers
- Community for church's and community organizations
- Patient for people with high blood pressure
Take a look at the Vital Signs fact sheet from the professional campus. This is from the CDC and summarizes some of the broad epidemiology of lipids and hypertension.
