On Saturday, April 2nd, The Medical Assistant students held the Healthy Heart event at Roosevelt Field Shopping Mall in Garden City. As a service learning activity, it allowed the students to provide a meaningful service to the community, while utilizing their clinical skills in a non-simulated setting. The Medical Assistant students provided free blood pressure checks and heart related information to over 150 shoppers throughout the course of the day. During the visit, guests were also given tips for a healthy heart and resources where they could find more information about the blood pressure’s effect on overall health. The event was so well received that the mall management has given the Garden City campus the opportunity to offer this event on a continuing basis.
