Offering interim services
During the preliminary screenings of our most recent mobile preventive care service, we were able to screen and diagnose a number of chronic medical conditions and high-risk factors in Langloire, a village near Morne Coma.
We empowered those on the verge of developing hypertension with preventative measures to incorporate into their daily life. We provided education and resources about dietary changes and stress reduction. We also encouraged exercising several days a week along with other interrelated steps, which have been shown to avoid full-blown hypertension in several studies.
We will continue to host educational seminars in churches, flea markets and private homes.
