IRH Participates in Community Event

  • Author: Wednesday, April 23rd, 2014

On January 29th, WKU’s Institute for Rural Health had the opportunity to participate in the “Community Connect Day of Hope” held at The Salvation Army in Bowling Green.  Held annually, this is a day of partnerships within the community to offer free food, fellowship, goods, and services to many of our underserved in and around Warren County.

Registered nurse Tracey Osborne and Graduate Student, Eiman AlEissa, of the Institute for Rural Health, and Tonya Bragg-Underwood of WKU’s RN to BSN program teamed up to provide a total of 111 lipid panel, glucose, and blood pressure screenings at the event.  The 37 participants who participated in the screenings were provided a copy of their results, related teaching and instruction, educational material, and doctor referrals as needed.  The WKU Institute for Rural Health and WKU School of Nursing are pleased to have the opportunity to work together for such a great event to serve and promote health and wellness in and around Warren County.
