Hypertension has risen steadily among adults in United States over the past 30 years. This increase has also been marked by a significant increase in reported prevalence rates of cardiovascular diseases. In response, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) funded the Lexington-Fayette County Health Department to deliver a hypertension self-management program for adults aged 35 and older. This manuscript follows the six steps of CDC program evaluation to aid Lexington citizens with uncontrolled high blood pressure (≥140/90 mmHg) in successful hypertension self-management. This evidence-based community intervention helps patients take responsibility for managing their hypertension with assistance from health care professionals, and support from families and the community.
