BERKELEY COLLEGE MEDICAL ASSISTANT STUDENTS PERFORM
HEALTH SCREENINGS DURING MARCH OF DIMES EVENT IN WAYNE

Photo Caption: Students in the Medical Assistant program at Berkeley College in Clifton, NJ, recently volunteered their time during the March of Dimes event at Wayne Hills High School in Wayne. The students applied knowledge from their core curriculum to check vital signs, and screened 75 individuals for high blood pressure during the Health Fair portion of the event. Berkeley College also formed a team of participants that walked in the event through the Berkeley Cares initiative, which assists local charities in the critical areas of food, shelter, health and student success.
