Associate Degree nursing students from Central Lakes College assisted at the recent Brainerd Lakes Health Fair, providing hand hygiene education at “Germ City,” a Minnesota department of Health demonstration booth, and blood pressure screening. 

Students volunteered to assist with taking blood pressures. They also made available written teaching pamphlets on hypertension, reducing risk of cardiac complications such as stroke and heart attack, and a summary of what the lab numbers mean.
