I work each week with two nurses, O and M, in the village’s medical center. Obviously I am not a nurse or a doctor, but part of my duties as a Peace Corps Volunteer in the Health Education in Schools and Communities program is to work with the medical center to promote healthy living. We organized a seminar and talked about a major health problem in Moldova (and the US), high blood pressure. We decided to target people who were at risk, thus, taking a prevention approach. And we ended the seminar by measuring the attendees’ blood pressure. I think it was a success, and I look forward to doing more projects with O and M. They’re really great women to work with.

Shout Out… Happy Birthday Meg K!
