HAPPY, Hypertension Awareness & Prevention Program at Yale, is a collaboration of Yale University students, health professionals, and New Haven health care agencies dedicated to providing regular hypertension screenings, linking hypertensive individuals with affordable and immediate medical care, and eliminating barriers to preventive health care for under-served communities in New Haven, CT. The ultimate goal of HAPPY is to establish cost-effective, long term community based approaches that foster self-management behaviors for chronic hypertension among the homeless population. HAPPY volunteers are trained to conduct weekly blood pressure screenings in community soup kitchens and centers and refer hypertensive patients for follow-up care.


We are currently looking for dedicated student volunteers to work with HAPPY during summer. If you are interested, please email This email address is hidden from email harvesters via JavaScript !
