Do you live in Southern Barton Heights? Do you need to monitor your Blood Pressure? Do you want to know your Blood Pressure? Mo, a resident at the Wingnut at 2005 Barton Avenue worked for 4 years as an EMT, and knows how to take Blood Pressure. If you would like to have Mo help you monitor your blood pressure please stop by the Wingnut or call 804 303 5449 (Wingnut home phone number) or 804 300 0023 (Mo’s phone number). She has a BP Cuff and sphygmomanometer .

We’ve been thinking about maybe starting to have some open hours at the Wingnut where neighbors can come by to get some basic first aid/EMT level medical help.

We all know that healthcare is a huge problem, and that there are tons of folks who can not afford any level of medical care. And we think that instead of counting on the government we should take care of each other.

Mo is an EMT with a couple years experience.
Maybe also incorporating some folks with knowledge of herbs?
Anyone with any ideas, medical supplies, herbal supplies, etc. please let us know if you want to be involved.

This isn’t something that is going to happen right away, but if we start planning it might eventually happen.
