HAMMOND | How to take control of one’s health and stay well is the focus of a free program that will be hosted by Purdue University Calumet at 6 p.m. April 3.
The program, "The Smart Patient," will offer medical information about injuries and prevention, nutrition, and organ donation. Blood pressure and blood sugar screenings also will be conducted by local nurses and PUC nursing students.
"This event is an opportunity for the public to become more aware of resources that are available and to become ‘smart patients’,” PUC Clinical Associate Professor of Nursing Joan Dorman said. “It’s a fact-finding adventure.”
Representatives from the Lake Area United Way and the Northwest Indiana Patient Safety Coalition will distribute information about Northwest Indiana safety initiatives and medical matters.
"The Smart Patient" is sponsored by PUC’s Mu Omega chapter of Sigma Theta Tau International Honor Society of Nursing.
