Abstract: Through the support of the University of North Carolina at Pembroke and Student Health Services, I completed my service-learning project. In the Chavis University Center I tabled a health and wellness station. At this station I used an automatic blood pressure machine and a finger pulse oximeter to measure individuals' blood pressure and oxygen levels. I wanted to provide relevant information concerning the cardiovascular health and scholastic performance to participating individuals. My goal was to bring awareness to collegiate students in regards to their blood pressure and oxygen levels. I also wanted to provide the participating individuals with the meanings of their blood pressure and oxygen level readings.I had over 100 participants approach me to learn their health numbers, and many returned consistently to learn and even track their health numbers. Overall, the goal of this service learning project was to give individuals the opportunity to make themselves more aware of their health.
