Kenyan nurses in the United States over the weekend gave back to the community by conducting a health screening exercise.
The health workers held a free medical camp in Metropolitan Atlanta on Sunday under the Kenyan Nurses in Diaspora (KENID), a non-profit organization formed by Kenyan nurses in the US.
During the exercise held between 2 pm and 6 pm, in Austell, Georgia, people were screened for cholesterol, diabetes, and high blood pressure.
Other services included dental checkup, psychotherapy, breast cancer screening with referrals to free mammograms, and stroke education among others.
KENID was formed to empower Kenyan nurses abroad and help them maximize their potential as they serve the community both locally and in Kenya.
Established in November last year, the group has representations in Georgia, Pennsylvania, Texas, and California, with a vision to reach all US states, Canada and Europe.
