The mission of the Hypertension Prevention Project is to help reduce hypertension among adults as well as kids, provide information and effectively take the HPP message to the community.
The activities in the project will mainly focus on testing and providing helpful information to help prevent hypertension. Once funded, one Sunday out of each month Shining Light for Lost Souls will provide free testing for hypertension. The project will operate on the goals in which I have set forth.
Health and Wellness Service Enhancements
The service we intend to enhance and provide screening for is Hypertension. We are trying to make these screenings available at Shining Light for Lost Souls a church which is located in the local community, and various members of the nurse’s guild. Additional information on the prevention of hypertension will be provided through brochures and other helpful information.
Single Point of Entry
The purpose of the single point of entry is to provide adults as well as children with helpful information on hypertension.
The neighborhood is in great need of this testing, due to all the fast foods restaurants located throughout the neighborhood. The nurse’s guild at Shining Light for Lost Souls is very enthused and willing to help provide this testing for the church and neighborhood.
