On March 28th, from 12:00 pm to 2:00 pm, Loyola nursing and medical students will be visiting the Maywood Public Library District to screen patrons for diabetes using a CDC validated screening test, which is provided by the CDC’s National Diabetes Prevention Program. Medical students fluent in Spanish will also be present to administer the test in Spanish. If someone is identified as being at risk for diabetes based on the results of the screening test, they will be referred to their primary care provider for further testing. If they do not have health insurance, they will be referred to the New Life Volunteering Society Free Health Clinic, located at 2645 West Peterson Avenue, Chicago, IL 60659.
The Library Board Meeting will be on Wednesday, April 1st, 2015, at 6:30 pm.
Loyola medical students will visit the Maywood Public Library District to perform health screenings for the community between 5:00 pm and 6:30 pm. Health screenings include taking a person’s blood pressure, offering counsel on nutrition, advice on how to quit or cut down on smoking, and chronic diseases. These screenings are free to the public, and will take place on April 1st.
Quilting: Step-By-Step Instruction
Making a sampler quilt is a great way to learn or practice different piercing and quilting skills. In learning to quilt, a variety of specially chosen quilt blocks can be used to familiarize yourself with twenty different piercing techniques. Full-sized patterns are given along with instructions and diagrams to make quilting fun. The quilting class previously completed a small group project using Freedom Quilt Code Blocks, while others used Appliqué, Hand Embroidery, Pre-Stamped Pillow Panels, and a variety of Hand Made Quilt Blocks.
If you are interested in learning how to construct quilts, please leave your information for Mildred A. Green at the Library by calling 708-343-1847, and ask for Information Services. The Quilting class meets at the Maywood Public Library District on every Tuesday from 12:00 noon until 2:30 pm in Room 202.
