Schnucks Screenings

Schnucks Screenings are a fun way to get involved with community service during first year and to practice your newly-learned skills! We rotate through local Schnucks grocery stores on Saturday mornings and provide free screenings to community members for hypertension and diabetes. We refer people with abnormal results to their physicians and we have resources available for people without health insurance; we then follow-up with these people by phone. It’s very rewarding because many of the people we screen didn’t realize that they were having problems. Schnucks Screenings are a great way to practice interacting with people, taking blood pressure and blood sugar measurements, and counseling about healthy living!
