Barber shop offers hair cut, shave and...a blood pressure test?

(KMOV.com) – High blood pressure or hyper-tension is among the deadliest conditions for black men, a new study finds.

According to the study, men who are at risk do not even know.

One barbershop outside Los Angeles is working to educate men by offering a shave, hair cut and a blood pressure test.

Patrons are taught how to take the readings, evaluate them and determine if they need to follow up with a doctor.

The owner of the shop says the program’s secret is that it reaches a population that rarely goes in for check-ups.
