TxDOT Hypertension

Hypertension is More than Just Hype

Helping ARC patients from prevention to diagnosis to treatment, and seeing them regain their quality of life, is one reason Dr. Sean Coughlin enjoys working in Internal Medicine.

Wilson Parke’s Dr. Sean Coughlin, and Mitch Goldman, MSN, Clinical Quality and Integration Project Director, gave a “Lunch ’n Learn” presentation on Hypertension to employees of the Texas Department of Transportation’s (TxDOT) main Austin office on January 25, 2017.

The two presenters discussed –often with humor - risk factors, healthy habits, and how to prevent hypertension, the “silent killer” that can quietly damage blood vessels and lead to serious health threats. More than 25 TxDOT employees listened intently, asked questions, and said they felt “educated” about hypertension and how to prevent it. “It was fun!” said both presenters, and both appreciated the opportunity to talk with the attendees during and after the presentation.

ARC hopes to continue our relationship with TxDOT’s employee wellness program and to be invited to TxDOT seminars in the future.
