On Sunday, November 6th, 2011 NU Fresno Nursing department took part in a free public Health Fair sponsored by Telemundo Broadcasting, at Manchester Mall in Fresno, CA. The health fair offered a variety of medical checkups to Spanish speaking persons who do not have medical insurance. A team of Fresno Campus faculty, students and staff participated in this health fair, offering blood pressure tests, dietary and infant health information. I am proud to report that our nursing students completed over 320 blood pressure checks and passed out information for better living. I was proud to organize this event to promote the universities values, give back to the community and put forth a positive image of National University.
