Reaching Out: Wellness Wednesdays

Massey Stores and St. James School of Medicine began the weekly Wellness Wednesdays Campaign; an initiative designed to encourage health living practices for Vincentian families. The first day of the campaign was last week Wednesday, 06 April 2016 at the Port Store in Kingstown. Lisa Babiak (SGA Volunteer Coordinator), Sree Yarlagadda (SGA Volunteer Coordinator) and Kirk Stewart (SGA President) spearheaded the launch in an effort to effectively coordinate a series of student volunteer teams over the next few months.

We were able to conduct blood pressure and glucose measuring for approximately 65 shoppers.

Events like these allow SJSM the opportunity of reaching out to the community while practicing their trade.

The next Wellness Wednesday will be on 13 April 2016 at the Arnos Vale Store. For more information, please contact Lisa (lbabiak@mail.sjsm.org) or Sree (syarlagadda@mail.sjsm.org).
