The Student National Pharmaceutical Association
At the Kidney Early Evaluation Program
health screenings, SNPhA members work with clinicams, nurses, social
workers and other volunteers to provide a comprehensive screening to
patients who may otherwise not get this health opportunity. Screenings
include blood pressure, height, weight, BMI, urinalysis and glucose
Additionally, 3 vials of blood are
drawn from patients to test cholesterol, serum creatinine levels and to check
for anemia. On-site physicians discussed
medical results with the participants, and SNPhA members were on-hand to
counsel on medications when needed. This is an amazing opportunity for interdisciplinary health care collaboration and
SNPhA members enjoyed the experience!
