Any Health care Professional or non-health is welcome to attend.
It was also suggested and recommended that we do a Blood Pressure Dr.ive at different area masjids after Friday prayers as seen at the health fairs that our community has pretty high incidence of undiagnosed high blood pressure. We can train high school senior student, College and medical students to volunteer with Nurse, Nurse practitioners or medical doctors supervising. Will be sending emails to all if they would like to participate.
Walk with a doc program provided by TMA in which only TMA members participate. This program provides talk to community members for 3-4 mins and then walking with them. Will send out emails to membership if they are interested in participation.
AMWPA Program surveys were also given to all guests.
Thanks to Dr. Humera for helping AMWPA host the event and graciously providing her house for these activities.
Thanks everyone for coming and supporting the organization. Together we can achieve a lot.
