Dear Faculty and Staff,
The Associate Degree Nursing Students will provide both the Dublin Site and the Mall Site faculty and staff with blood pressure screenings and education. This Blood Pressure Awareness Day is planned for Friday, Oct. 24th from 8:00AM to 12:00. The students will visit faculty and staff offices at both sites during this 4 hour period. Faculty & Staff, we want to make this screening as stress free as possible and you certainly have the option to “opt out” if the visit by the students is not convenient for you. The students will be available to discuss blood pressure findings and provide education during this visit.

Poster presentations will be displayed at the Dublin Site in the main hall of Godbey during this Blood Pressure Awareness Day for all to view. The poster presentations at the Mall Site will be displayed outside the main doors of the campus site in the Food Court Area.
Please visit the students, ask questions and make comments. We appreciate your interest and participation in providing our students these opportunities for blood pressure screenings and health education.

Opportunities in the Community:
The Young Adult Survey is an important part of the work that Montgomery County Prevention Partners will do in conjunction with Virginia Tech to design prevention efforts to reduce the number of alcohol related car crashes caused by 18 to 24 year olds in Montgomery County. The survey is completely anonymous. You must be between the ages of 18 and 24 and live in Montgomery County most of the year to complete the Young Adult Survey, which takes about 10 minutes.

The Community Perception Survey is for anyone 18 and older living in Montgomery County most of the year, the survey is completely anonymous and takes about 3 minutes. Anyone 18 to 24 living in Montgomery County can complete the Young Adult Survey and the Community Perception Survey.

There are additional opportunities to help for those that are interested. There will be focus groups and community forums, for which participants will receive incentives.

If you are 18-24 years old and living in Montgomery County the majority of the year, please help us to identify factors to decrease drinking and driving among 18-24 year olds. Montgomery County Prevention Partners will conduct focus groups consisting of 18-24 year olds in order to get feedback on alcohol-related motor vehicle crashes. Participation will take about 1 hour, a response will not be identified with an individual, and upon completion of the focus group you will receive a $25 gift card to Target. Even if you withdraw early, you will still receive the $25 gift card.

Community forums will be held for all adults living in Montgomery County, at these forums we hope to get input from multiple sectors of our community, including parents, health care organizations or providers, businesses and employers, groups that work with youth, law enforcement, local government, faith community leaders and education. Food will be provided for community forums.

Community forums and focus groups will be established in different locations around Montgomery County based on what is easiest for people interested in participating.

If interested, contact Tyler Vance at or 540-961-8300 ext. 1245.

Have a great week, everyone!
