On September 23, 2015 the NPBPAF provided a free blood pressure screening to 74 students at Gardere Community Christian School in Baton Rouge, LA.  We are grateful to Connie Cook, RN who selflessly volunteered her time to be a part of this educational event for the students.  Additionally the NPBPAF provided information to parents about the importance of routine screenings along with information on healthy lifestyles.



As we continue school presentations across Louisiana we are always amazed at the bright young minds and future leaders!  We spent an amazing day at St. Ignatius School in Grand Coteau, LA and did healthy lifestyle presentations to 10 class in 1st through 5th grades.  Great kids, great school!

We were invited to be a part of the Delta Sigma Theta kids health fair.  What a great opportunity to serve children and families in our community with free blood pressure screens.  Thank you to all of the nurse volunteers from SUSON who performed the screens!

First Round of School Screenings in Louisiana!
2013 marked the beginning of our school screening initiative in Louisiana.  We are very excited to have the opportunity to provide free blood pressure screens to so many children who otherwise may not have access to this valuable diagnostic.  If you are an educator or parent and would like to learn more about how to get this done in your school, please contact us


There is one word to describe our event held in Paducah, KY....SUCCESS!!  It was an amazing event.  1000's of people poured in KY Oaks Mall for this event and we were able to meet AND exceed our screening goals.  We aimed to provide 500 free screens.  We screened 621 children! In addition we also had some of the "big kids" (as in adults) ask for a screening.  We provided 57 adult screens as well.  It was a great feeling to give out all of our goody bags and know we impacted that many families.  Additionally our volunteer healthcare workers identified 141 children that higher than normal bp readings.  They were able to counsel their parents on the appropriate follow-up with their healthcare provider.  Thanks to everyone that made it a huge success!
