Many cultures, one purpose: changing families, changing communities. Muchas culturas un proposito: haciendo la diferencia en las familias, haciendo la diferencia en las comunidades
Families in Action was pleased to host Methodist College Mobile Clinic and nursing students last month at our 32 and K site. The eight nursing students, accompanied by Nursing Professors, provided blood sugar screenings, height and weight measurements, bmi, and blood pressure checks. FIA’s literacy students, along with our Families in Action participants and staff, were honored to work with such a dedicated group of students and faculty.
FIA’s participants, men, women and children credit regular participation in educational, nutritional and exercise programs conducted via FIA with meeting their health and wellness needs. Additional information was requested by participants concerning elevated blood sugar levels in children and FIA facilitated a brief question and answer forum on this topic with one of our Creighton physician volunteers and Dr. Cristina Fernandez (Board member).
