Love Your Heart Healthy Living Fair

Pictured: Planning Committee for Love Your Heart healthy living fair

On Saturday, February 14, 2009 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m Portland Community College (PCC) nursing students will partner with Tuality Healthcare, the AARP, Medical Reserve Corps (MRC), the National Nursing Network Organization and the PCC Student Nurses Associations, to present ‘Love Your Heart’ healthy living fair. The event will take place in the Tuality Health Education Center located at 334 S.E. Eighth Ave in Hillsboro, Oregon. The goal is to educate citizens of Hillsboro and surrounding areas about preventing heart disease and promoting healthy hearts. Spanish information will be also be provided.

The AARP will be available to talk about services their organization provides and the MRC will provide information about emergency preparedness. Groups of 3-4 student nurses will provide tools to promote health literacy in English and Spanish that integrate the following topics: nutrition and exercise, living well with chronic disease, depression and caring for the care giver, diabetes and heart disease, immunizations, tobacco education, hypertension, stroke and peripheral vascular disease, screenings such as blood pressure, glucose, cholesterol and body mass index. Within each station, students will talk one-on-one with clients to determine potential risks, current health status and health literacy. Students will then encourage clients using motivational interviewing to take steps towards improving their health and living with a healthy heart. An evaluation tool will be included in order to gain awareness of what worked and what did not for each participant that join us at the fair. If you live in the Portland Metropolitan area, you are welcome to join us and we look forward to greeting you.
