Trained student volunteers from Rutgers and North American Disease Intervention offer complimentary health screenings. No appointment necessary. Roxbury Public Library for blood pressure measurements, BMI, calculation of body fat percentage, and grip strength measurements.
The North American Disease Intervention (NADI) is a registered nonprofit and public health organization at Rutgers University that focuses on raising awareness about diabetes and hypertension in our local communities.
NADI's hard-working team is composed of trained undergraduate, graduate, and medical student volunteers from Rutgers who have held over 500 health screenings.
At these free screenings, we take blood pressure measurements, BMI, calculation of body fat percentage, and grip strength measurements and explain what these measurements mean to participants. Along with screenings, we have also given informational presentations on hypertension, diabetes mellitus, and current research on both diseases.
NADI has collaborated with institutions such as the Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital, libraries, farmers' markets, religious venues (e.g. temples, churches), and conventions since the organization's inception in 2014.
No registration necessary.
