Student Nurses’ Association October Newsletter

LVHN 50+ Wellness Expo

Where do older adults go to get free blood pressure readings or balance and other health screenings? The Lehigh Valley 50+ Wellness Expo is the answer! Some of our amazing members of SNA volunteered their time to assist the staff at this health fair. During this time, our members got to learn about multiple screenings older adults often receive. These screenings included bone density, flu information, and endoscopy/colonoscopy. For more on this story and upcoming SNA events, check out our October newsletter.
