You might think that hypertension is genetic and you get it from your family and there’s nothing you can do to change that. That however, is not always the case. It is important to realize that we also inherit our behavior from our family as well. This is good news!! But why is this good news you ask? Because we can change our destiny! If our family members have high blood pressure we do not necessarily have to have high blood pressure. At this years expo physiologist Joel Weintraub will be teaching us how to reduce the risk of developing high blood pressure by improving our sleep and nutrition habits. Let’s break this chain of familial hypertension together. If we put our minds to it, anything is possible.
Joel Weintraub is a “humorous educator” who has managed to merge the formerly disparate worlds of comedy and education. From the “World Bank” to Dangerfield’s Comedy Club to major radio stations, the local news and the Food Channel … they have all laughed and learned with “Humor for the Health of it”.
