Hypertension, or chronic high blood pressure, affects nearly half of U.S. adults. On this episode of the Women’s Healthcast, maternal-fetal medicine specialist Dr. Kara Hoppe and research manager Jamie LaMantia talked about what causes hypertension, how it’s often treated, and why high blood pressure can be a concern in pregnancy.

Hoppe and LaMantia also discussed two ongoing clinical research projects currently recruiting participants: the MyHEART study examining high blood pressure management in young adults, and the Chronic Hypertension and Pregnancy (CHAP) study.
