Free, Weekly Blood Pressure, Glucose Screenings and Pop-up Nutrition Education

Free, weekly blood pressure, glucose screenings and pop-up nutrition education starting NEXT WEEK! See schedule below for days, times, and locations.

Barnstable County Public Health Nurses will be at 5 site locations for 16 weeks starting next week (week of March 5th) and continuing on through most of June. The nurses will be set up at tables, ready to check your levels and answer questions.

There will also be nutrition information and recipes to take with you! Come for the pop-up cooking demonstrations conducted by Barnstable County Nutrition Educators twice per month at each location. These cooking demonstrations will highlight fresh, local produce as part of a nutritionally healthful and preventative diet.

This program is free and open to all! There is no sign up or registration– just stop by the table at one of the five host locations. You can come by as often as you want: weekly (to monitor your levels), one time, or anything in between. Plus, you don’t want to miss the cooking demos!
