Our Center, in collaboration with the "Helping Hands Community Health Promoter Program" (HHCHPP) offered its first 30-hour course for 12 community volunteers who were interested in learning more about staying healthy and helping family, friends, and neighbors make healthier life-choices and decisions. Classes were taught by professionals from Carilion Clinic, LewisGale Medical Center, Jefferson College of Health Sciences, VA Cooperative Extension, Blue Ridge Cancer Care, VA Tech, Green Ridge Community Center, the Council
of Community Services, and other health professionals from the Roanoke Valley. Graduates--Community Health Promoters, will monitor their health indicators, (e.g., blood pressure, blood glucose, BMI, cholesterol, weight, waist circumference, etc.) and encourage others to use
health information and medical services to improve their lives and the life of others.
Our 5th Annual Back-to-School Celebration was held in our converted gym on August 25th.
