Adult Education students in the Medical Assisting program recently gave a presentation at the Superintendent's annual Senior Citizens Luncheon. Students conveyed their excitement about what they are learning and were able to practice some of their newly acquired skills. They offered free blood pressure checks and heartbeat checks to the seniors before and after lunch as they study the difference ingesting food makes in blood pressure rates.
