The goal of the essay/video contest is for middle school age children to research hypertension on their own and write an essay that educates others on the issue. After a preliminary round of judging a select few then create a video that further expound upon the issue of pediatric hypertension. The top 3 videos are chosen and the creators are recognized at a luncheon honoring their efforts.
The NPBPAF is committed to helping the hospitalized pediatric population. The NPBPAF has donated pillow cases, hospital gowns, toys, games, blankets, comfort bags, and toiletries to hospitalized patients and their families.
What better way to relax than a morning of fishing? For nearly a decade the NPBPAF hosted an annual fishing derby as a means of community engagement. Families would spend time unwinding by the pond. Volunteer medical professionals provided children with free blood pressure screenings.
The opportunity to present information about pediatric hypertension is always welcome. Speaking to nursing students, businesses, civic organizations, schools, and healthcare seminars has allowed the NPBPAF to share relevant information.
