Free Blood-pressure Screening at Red Cross Center

May 12, 2004 – The Retired Nurses of St. Croix organization as a community service is offering free blood-pressure screening to the public twice a month at the American Red Cross service center in Castle Coakley.
The screening will be available the first and third Tuesday of each month between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. The Red Cross center is located next to Caribe Do-It-Center on Route 66.
The not-for-profit Retired Nurses of St. Croix organization was recently formed by a group of retired health-care workers. Its mission is to utilize members' professional expertise to provide community services in comforting and counseling patients, families and friends in medical crisis situations; to enlighten the public about common health risks and their avoidance; and to help recruit and mentor young people to enter the nursing profession.
The officers of the group are Magdalene Hobson, president; Ena Berry, vice president; June Rawlins, secretary; and Gwendolyn Burke, treasurer.
For more information about the organization or the blood-pressure screening program, call Hobson at 778-2871.
