FREE blood pressure screenings are available to the public at all San Diego Blood Bank donor centers starting February 11 through February 19, 2023.
A blood donation is not required to receive a free screening. All blood donors will receive a blood pressure reading during their pre-donation health screening.
Do you know your numbers? It is important to maintain a healthy heart through regular exercise, a healthy diet, and simply monitoring your blood pressure throughout the year.
We invite you to stop by a San Diego Blood Bank location and donate blood or visit for a FREE blood pressure screening during Love Your Heart week.
"A great way to get your blood pressure checked regularly is to donate blood at your local blood bank.
You can save your life by knowing your numbers…and you can save the lives of up to three others with each donation!"
