Practical Nursing Students Help
at Viracon Health Fair

In the month of April, the Medical Surgical II Practical Nursing students assisted in a Health Fair at Viracon.  The students attended to the employees of Viracon over two days.  They provided blood pressure and blood glucose screening and performed height and weight measurements to provide body mass indexes.  This hands on experience gave the students an opportunity to demonstrate the skills they learned in the classroom, as well as an opportunity to work with people in the community.

While conducting the health fair, the students experienced the health issues facing the community such as high blood pressure, obesity and high/low blood glucose levels. Ogeechee Technical College was well represented at the Health Fair. In addition to their volunteer work, the students manned an Ogeechee Technical College booth and distributed pamphlets, brochures and applications for admission to Viracon employees.
