CEF Blood Pressure Check!




CEF member Audrey Boyles takes Tommy’s blood pressure as Alex Almeter holds an informative blood pressure guide.

This past Friday, CEF members Audrey Boyles, Alex Almeter, and Matt Givens organized a blood pressure screening event in the office.

The event provided CEF with the opportunity to evaluation client’s blood pressure, educate about the importance of maintaining a normal blood pressure, and enroll attendees in a primary health care service.

We were able to screen 4 clients and discovered most of their blood pressures are normal. All 4 received a basic worksheet that defines blood pressure, details the consequences of hypertension, and answers common questions. As well, we recommended each attendee make an appointment with one of the health care providers below.
