It was a rainy, foggy, and blustery day, but this didn’t stop volunteers from the Rotary Club of San Francisco in staffing the RotaCare booth this past Saturday at the Serramonte Mall. Present were Club members: Bob Hermann, Susan Dean, and guest Karen Tomczak. Also present were the Club’s Corporate members: Catholic Charities represented by Patty Clement Clark, Mike Clark, Jane Ferguson Flout, and Ross Lyon; and San Francisco State University represented by Destinee Lanns. From RotaCare was Regina Cruz.

At the event, free blood pressure checks were available; educational materials were provided on healthcare awareness, blood pressure information, RotaCare services and clinic locations, and volunteer opportunities. Our very own Susan Dean, RN and her friend, Karen Tomczak, RN, conducted over two dozen blood pressure checks to young and old alike. Bob, who serves on the Board of Directors of RotaCare, provided information on the electronic medical record technology that is being used in many RotaCare Clinics in the hopes of bettering care delivery and accessibility to the underserved communities.
All volunteers and staff were happy to talk to various mall shoppers who were inquiring about RotaCare and what it does in the Bay Area.
