Diabetes Awareness Month: White coats show support

ETSU's SNPhA started off Diabetes Awareness month with support for patients living with diabetes. Our chapter invited the school to wear their whites coats for a group photo outside our campus. Participants were given either the diabetes symbol, or diabetes ribbon to hold up and show their support.

Kidney Talk with Davita Dialysis Center

We invited our local Davita Dialysis Center to present a kidney education class. Social worker and kidney expert; Erin Jones was the presenter. The presentation was open to the entire student body. Attendees learned about stages of kidney failure, kidney failure options, types of dialysis, dieting and what to look out for in terms of lab values. Following the presentation students were asked to make a pledge to protect their kidneys.

On-Campus Free HIV/AIDS Testing & Education

Three (3) members of SNPhA partnered with Hope for Tennessee to provide free HIV testing to East Tennessee State University's students and faculty/staff. Along with testing,we provided HIV and Hepatitis C educational materials that explained risk factors and how to protect yourself from contracting these diseases. This outreach event was very successful because we were able to provide testing for 10 students and educate many others on HIV and HCV. Members included: Remember The Ribbon chair: Katrice Lampley ('19), Kristen Medlock ('19) and Rohma Nahin ('19)

We served the last meals for the Fall semester with a happy smile and burning desire to continue in the Spring. As we have been doing this service over the past four months we have enjoyed seeing familiar faces and getting together as a group to help do our part in the community. This time we were able to serve 63 community members. Meals were served by Erin Light ('19), Samuel Ngata ('20), Chris Smith ('20), Jessica Stringfellow ('19) and Addison Wolfe ('19)
