Community service is one of the tri dharmas of higher education that must be routinely carried out by a lecturer. One form of community service implementation is to provide services in the health sector through free medical examinations and direct drug consultations to the community. The health check activity this time is to check people's blood pressure. Blood pressure check was chosen because it is a degenerative disease that many suffer. High blood pressure (hypertension) if left untreated can lead to fatal complications such as stroke (51%) and coronary heart disease (45%). This community service aims to provide free health check services to assist the community in health control. This activity is a form of increasing public awareness of the importance of health.
