Islamic Foundation North high school students trained to serve at health clinic

Nancy Romanchek, Mosque Community Nurse, trained four IFN high school volunteers in the American Heart Association Heartsaver® First Aid CPR AED course over two Saturday mornings this past August.

The course prepared them to serve as volunteers at the IFN Health Clinic, which serves uninsured patients in Lake County.

The four young women also learned how to check blood glucose readings with the glucometer, register patients’ information into an electronic medical record system, obtain patient consents, which often involves translation from Urdu to English, and check vital signs, heights and weights.
