" " Staying with the process. It is most times hectic and demands so much energy but then it's the result that people desire to see to finally draw a positive conclusion on your efforts. Not just people but ourselves.
I am super excited to be a Millennium Fellow. Being one is more like a part of the process to whom I have to become. The impact I will make in this project I am set to engage on and even going further will be great." "

Millennium Fellowship Project: Fight Against Hypertension

The Fight Against Hypertension is a project that aims at promoting the awareness of
hypertension (HTN) to students at the University of Nigeria, Nsukka, and by extension, to their
love ones. Hypertension is a threat to the health of people, and it kills silently.
There is an axiom that an ounce of prevention is better than a pound of cure. Therefore, the
project is one of preventive measures towards HTN and an extension to other cardiovascular diseases like stroke and heart failure.
The project would promote quality health through the following activities:
i. Creating awareness of chronic diseases, in particular hypertension(HTN).
ii. In light of the fact that HTN is not only a disease of the elderly but can also affect the young, a healthy living tomorrow begins with living right and consciously today.
iii. Educating people on how to go about the prevention and also better management of the disease for those already suffering from it is key.
iv. This project would be carried out through outreaches (free blood pressure checks), seminars, virtual meetings via Zoom, and the creation of fliers, banners, and 3D animations to communicate our intentions and share the knowledge.
