SFSU nursing students talk high blood pressure

Dangers of high blood pressure shared with Alcantara Court residents

Every month the residents of Alcantara Court have ‘community meetings.’ Speakers are often invited. At this community meeting students from the San Francisco State University Nursing Program make a presentation about the warning signs of high blood pressure. The quiz included in the talk helped dispel the stereotypes about who is most at risk for high blood pressure. The talk was presented in English and Spanish. One of the nursing students translated for a Chinese resident. The SFSU instructor — a registered nurse — coached the students and answered more detailed questions from the residents.
