The University of Alabama has launched a new mobile app that tracks hypertension. The app was not only designed to help users manage their blood pressure, but also allows you to record your everyday medications and physical activity. The app also provides several stress reducing ideas, and reminds you to take your medication. The app has been a collaborative effort between the Center for Advanced Public Safety and researchers, including Dr. Louanne Friend at The University of Alabama.

In 1837, The University of Alabama became one of the first five universities in the nation to offer engineering classes. Today, UA’s College of Engineering has more than 5,800 students and more than 150 faculty. In recent years, students in the College have been named USA Today All-USA College Academic Team members, Goldwater, Hollings, Portz, Boren, Mitchell and Truman scholars.
