Health Blood Pressure Screening Point
As part of our health cause in our department, we have designated several Blood Pressure (B/P) Pop-Up health check sites thru out the counties we serve. This pop-up site are strategic placed outside of shopping centers or restaurants where our Hispanic/ Latin/Latinx community frequent.
Our CHW approached people and consented to do a BP testing. Afterwards, people are giving information about the importance of regularly checking their B/P levels and the impact of a health -balance die. Outcome measure with people with high readings are flagged to be able to later on invite them to form part of our Medicaid Diabetes Prevention Program in Granville County.
