“Through its mobile nurses program, the Pueblo community is given access to services such as flu shots, blood pressure checks and bone density screenings,” says Jeff Tucker, public relations specialist with Parkview Medical Center. “But the mobile nurses also provide important community education, including seminars on hands-only CPR, and presentations to both children and adults on the dangers of smoking. Recently the nurses have become certified in plant-based education and have held events such as grocery store tours to encourage the public to incorporate more fruits and vegetables into their diets along with more exercise.”
