This past Thursday CHIPsters headed out to Hoover Elementary School to run an adult screening site. We were lucky to have 12 patients come and leave happy with successful blood pressure and blood glucose screenings done. Our volunteers did an great job utilizing the techniques taught to them at prior training, allowing the session to move both smoothly and well. We hope to see these patients again at our next health site on April 21st, and can’t wait to have many more members of the organization join us here!

On Friday, December 11th, CHIP members headed down to Belmont Elementary School for the 2nd Annual Belmont Wellness Holiday Fair to provide blood pressure screenings to promote cardiovascular wellness in the community. We were able to screen over a hundred patients. It was great to see everyone so genuinely eager to get screened and so interested in their health. Overall, the screenings went very smoothly and the health fair was a big success. Big thanks to Ethan, Prajwal, Elaine, Power, Julianna, and Pratik for making this event so successful despite it being finals week.

On Sunday, December 6th active CHIP members and board went to Chichen Itza in Mercado Plaza near USC for ours semesterly appreciation dinner. We all had some great authentic Mexican food while talking and catching up. Highlights included the cochinita pibil, ceviche, and tamale calvados. Special thanks to Pratik, Annie, Danny and Oscar for driving.
Overall, this semester would not have been so successful without all your help. Thank you so much for all the volunteerism and participation. We really appreciate it and we hope to see you at future events.
Good luck on finals and have a great, restful winter break.
On Sunday, November 15, CHIP members returned to Golden Age Village in Monterey Park, where we were able to provide blood glucose and blood pressure screening to more than twenty residents.
