Jinshui Social Service Center is located in Zhengzhou City of Henan Province. Since its establishment, it serves for needy persons, families, groups and organizations with professional knowledge and skills. The organization has 10 full-time staff.
This past month, we partnered with Zhengzhou People's Hospital and delivered a public health campaign to increase education about high blood pressure for elderly people. In many more remote towns, people at high risk of disease have little access to information on treatment and prevention.
Before the lecture, we had our health practitioners measure everyone's blood pressure, so they have a better understanding of how the information will relate in their individual situation. We distributed informational pamphlets and other reading material and had several experts explained the causes of blood pressure and the effect it has on our health. We ended the class with an informative Q&A since many people in the audience asked questions, particularly on their current health. Our lecturers provided some suggestions for treatment and lifestyle changes. In general, proper diet, balanced nutrition, moderate exercise and minimal use of cigarettes and alcohol are all key factors in maintaining a healthy heart.
