We are HAPPY to help!
HAPPY, Hypertension Awareness & Prevention Program at Yale, is a collaboration of Yale University students, health professionals and New Haven health care agencies dedicated to providing regular hypertension screenings, linking hypertensive individuals with affordable and immediate medical care, and eliminating barriers to follow-up care for under-served communities in New Haven.
Our New, Broader Initiative!
HAPPY has taken an active stance towards refining what student-led blood pressure screening groups need to do in order to effectively make a change in the lives of those we interact with. After all, we want to find ways to effectively decrease blood pressure in the community we screen. To accomplish this broader task, HAPPY is the founding member of an umbrella organization functioning to coordinate volunteer efforts at multiple universities and institutions throughout the country.
