CBD College Hosts Free Clinic
CBD College is proud to announce we had the opportunity to host a Free Medical Clinic on Thursday, November 5, 2015.
At CBD’s Free Medical Clinic we welcomed members of the community to enjoy a variety of very useful services at absolutely no charge to them. The phenomenal students and faculty from three of our six first-rate programs banded together to host this wonderful event, which helped so many valued members of our community.
“The free clinic gave students the opportunity to work with other patients that just their regular classmates,”said Jo Sing, Medical Assistant Program Director, “This broadened their perspective on the types of questions that patients can ask them during a procedure.”
The day was a smashing success, and every-one present did their part to contribute to the overall feeling of goodwill that was present during the event. Medical Assistants provided blood pressure checks, glucose screenings, and cholesterol checks for the people in attendance who requested them, and the Diagnostic Medical Sonography students offered stroke and aneurysm scans to attendees who seemed very pleased to receive them.
The Pharmacy Technician program hosted Walgreens Pharmacy, which was offering not only this year’s flu vaccine, but also complimentary pneumonia, shingles and hepatitis vaccinations to anyone in attendance.
Many of our very own CBD staff and faculty took advantage of this opportunity and received flu shots at the clinic as well. All attendees were also entered into a raffle, and winner Sylvia Ramirez, a student in the Physical Therapy Assistant program, was presented with a free blood pressure cuff at the end of the event. Congratulations to Sylvia and everyone else who pitched in to bring this amazing free clinic event to the community. The turnout for this free clinic was even higher than the last, and with such a great group of people running the show the next free clinic is certain to be an even bigger success.
