Health Awareness Checks

Health Awareness Checks

Students and staff from the UCD School of Nursing, Midwifery and Health Sciences carried out health awareness checks across Dublin in April 2018. These checks took place in identified shopping centres in socio-economically disadvantaged areas, where students, under the supervision of Dr Phil Halligan and Philip Hardie from UCD SNMHS, carried out blood pressure, BMI, heart rate and oxygen levels checks and gave advice on healthy eating and lifestyle. A really great event that benefited both the community and the UCD students involved!
