Healthy Community, One Block at a Time

During the summer, we were also able to go out into the community at Pioneer Square. We set up a booth to offer free blood pressure checks to anybody who wanted one. Our volunteers also stood on the street corners with signs saying, “Free Hugs” and “Smile”. Last of all, we gave out free books to people who were interested. The public responded extremely positively and loved taking pictures with the signs, receiving free hugs, and being reminded to smile. People were also very appreciative of the free blood pressure checks from our volunteer nurses. We were able to reach out to many hundreds of people that day.
