Get Your Blood Pressure and Glucose Checked

These blood pressure and glucose evaluations can lead to prevention and early detection of the “silent killer” diseases such as hypertension, heart disease, and diabetes.  As needs determine, the nurses offer counseling, education, referrals, and an opportunity to discuss any health management related issues or questions.  Frequent topics of discussion include:  how to use a glucose meter, questions about a recommended diet, or where to attend a health class.  The nurses provide a small card on which to record results, a good way to keep track of one’s health status and monitor progress. 

These outreach nurses are active all year, working with many community-based organizations such as community centers, senior centers, faith organizations, schools, food banks, mental wellness programs, and health clinics. 

For glucose test, please fast 2 hours prior to test.
