Close to half of American adults have high blood pressure. Of those, about 75% don’t have it controlled and many don’t even know they have it. Not only is high blood pressure a leading cause and controllable risk factor for heart disease and stroke, but it can also contribute to worse outcomes for people who contract COVID-19. Hollywood actress and singer Naturi Naughton is leading a new movement to encourage people to check their blood pressure at home. The New Jersey native collaborated with the American Heart Association to create a fun and easy social media dance routine aimed to teach people how to check their blood pressure and to increase awareness of high blood pressure and how you can get involved. Naturi encourages viewers to learn their blood pressure numbers and get them under control for their health and for the health of our communities.  Naughton’s dance routine includes four simple steps— get it, slip it, cuff it, check it, showcasing how to self check and monitor blood pressure levels.  Physical activity or exercise can markedly decrease the risk of chronic diseases, including high blood pressure.

 

It’s been more than two decades since Naturi Naughton began to establish herself as a triple threat in entertainment. She launched her career as a singer with the music group 3LW, before revealing her acting skill with roles on “Fame,” “Notorious” and the “Power” franchises. She’s also proved she could deliver in front of a live audience on the Broadway stage. Naturi Cora Maria Naughton is an American singer, songwriter, and actress. Naughton is best known as a third of the R&B group 3LW and for her acting roles in the films Fame and Notorious, in which she played rapper Lil' Kim. Gevevive’s Organic Pearl Collection was live on the NBC Today show.
