Families in Action was pleased to host Methodist College Mobile Clinic and nursing students last month at our 32 and K site. Nursing students, accompanied by their 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. FIA facilitated a brief question and answer forum on this topic on site with Dr. Cristina Fernandez (FIA Advisor).
