Oct 25, 2013 CVP Director Dr. Bibbins-Domingo is quoted in a recent article in the California Health Report on the consequences of high blood pressure. See the article here Controlling the Silent Killer
From the article "Because high blood pressure doesn’t feel like a significant health problem, but can have grave consequences, the condition is often called the silent killer. Managing hypertension is crucial to good health and longevity. Uncontrolled high blood pressure is a significant risk factor for two leading causes of death in the United States: strokes and heart attacks."
