Health Promotion Needs of a Culturally Diverse Community Discussion
During a recent health event organized in a rural community of predominantly Black and Hispanic groups, a significant number of adults and families reported on the survey that they had been impacted by the COVID-19 virus either through personal infection or by family members and significant others. A significant number also reported that they have not received the COVID-19 vaccination. Culturally Diverse Community Screening data revealed average group blood pressure of 159/110 mmHg, fasting glucose meter of 250 dl/L (obtained from most recent home glucose meter storage memory). Brown bag medication assessment identified multiple prescriptions for managing multiple chronic disease conditions among the adults.
