Program Assistant I (Former Employee) – Wellsville, NY – July 21, 2015
Typically, the day would start out with cleaning equipment that the public would be in contact with.
Two days a week we traveled to other sites.
Participants were rostered upon arrival to determine the nature of their appointment.
Some were required to be measured at every appointment.
If appointment was their first visit proof of identity, income and residency in NY State was required, this was re-established once a year.
Returning appointments were made depending on the nutritional risk of the participant at 1, 2 or 3 month intervals.
The program is nutrition based, and healthy lifestyle information was provided.
Having an impact on someone's life during their pregnancy and what to do after they deliver was a very enjoyable part of my job.
