Fisher, Mt. Olivet Host Free Blood Pressure Screenings

March 14, 2023

The Wegmans School of Nursing and Wegmans School of Pharmacy at St. John Fisher University are partnering with Mt. Olivet Baptist Church to host a clinic that will provide free blood pressure screenings to members of the community.

The clinic, which runs from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Thursday, March 16, at Mt. Olivet (141 Adams Street) is free and open to the public. Walk-ins are welcome; no registration is needed.

Mt. Olivet, one of the oldest and largest Baptist churches in Rochester, is situated in a zip code with some of the greatest health disparities in Monroe County. The clinic aims to help address health care needs by offering preventative screenings and providing information about diet and exercise.  

This is the second time Fisher and Mt. Olivet have partnered to provide health care services; in December 2022, the two organizations offered a COVID-19 bivalent booster and flu vaccine clinic.
