Additional Study Information: The purpose of this research study is to determine whether ambulatory monitoring of blood pressure measured by a finger touch blood pressure monitor is a viable approach to measuring blood pressure in the field. A secondary aim is to determine whether the finger touch blood pressure monitor is influenced by individual differences in current stress levels reported by participants. The study visit will include two brief surveys about blood pressure monitoring and hypertension, a questionnaire for assessment of subjective global stress (PSS), measurements of BP through the finger touch blood pressure monitor and conventional blood pressure cuff and, a survey about the measurement experience. The entire procedure will take approximately 1 hour. Participants will receive $10 for completing the first part of the study (PSS and surveys) and $40 for completing the second part of the study (blood pressure measurements). The maximal compensation for each participant is $50
