Blood pressure checks and making new friends at Friends in Deed


Green Valley, AZ – Friends in Deed (FID), Green Valley’s oldest non-profit organization, has started a new program called “Friends in Deed Friday” where you can get your blood pressure checked and meet new friends at the same time.

Launched in early January, the Friends in Deed Friday program offers free blood pressure screenings every Friday. Participants can enjoy an assortment of treats afterwards in a room set up especially for socializing. Goodies like fresh fruits, cheeses, pastries, cookies, and coffee are just some of the free offerings.
In addition, hobbies, artwork or other crafts created by different groups and individuals are shared with the participants every Friday. Jan Travis, a miniature collector and doll-house creator, had on display her replica of St. Francis-in-the-Valley Episcopal Church at one of the screenings. The details of her church—both inside and out—made her creation a wonderful conversation starter at the event.

More recently, Don Moberg and Laura Greenfield, two members of the Green Valley Woodcarvers, a group that also meets at FID, were on hand explaining their craft to those enjoying a snack after their screening. RN Betsey Medearis helped spearhead the program, and so far it has been a hit.

The Friends in Deed Friday blood pressure screenings run from 8:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. every Friday at Friends in Deed, 301 W. Camino Casa Verde, Green Valley. Everyone is invited to join and free transportation from Villas East and Villas West is available by calling 625-4424. No wheelchair transportation is available at this time, however. Contact FID at 625-1150 for further information.
