Summary of project On Sunday, students from PUMS organized a glucose and blood pressure screening at a local church. After results were given, they were discussed briefly and there were students present to answer any additional questions. This was advertised by the priest during masses for days before the event, as well as with informational flyers. We are quite pleased by the amount of people who took advantage of our services.
