Annual Spring Health Fairs

4493National Nurses Week (May 6-10) started with the center of PPMC’s Professional Practice Model and a fundamental component PPMC’s mission to serve the community. Under the Nursing Professional Development Council leadership, PPMC volunteers made the 5th Annual “Spring into Health Community Day” a major success for local residents, meeting with more than 400 attendees.

Through both the “Spring into Health Community Day” and last month’s “The Sounds of West Philadelphia at Life – 3rd Annual Community Wellness Day” volunteers met with over 1,200 people in the West Philadelphia community to learn more information and new ways to improve their health.

Stay tuned in future issues of the Presby Bulletin for more on how we celebrated National Nurses Week.
