Frequently Asked Questions



What services are provided at APSEA screenings?

For most screenings, participants will measure blood pressure, take blood glucose, and conduct body composition analysis. At the New Brunswick Farmers Market, volunteers will not conduct blood glucose screenings.

Will my personal identifiers be used during data collection?

At screenings, APSEA volunteers collect data either through physical carbon copy forms or through an online form. This data is entered into Rutgers REDCap, a secure and HIPAA compliant online database. Data is de-identified during analysis. Volunteers ask for the name and age of participants to control for duplicate data points. Contact information is collected to follow up with participants interested in our Lifestyle Change Program or that have high blood pressure or blood glucose measurements.

Can I get involved with APSEA even if I am not a Rutgers student?

Of course! APSEA will train and assess interested volunteers that are 18 and older. If you or someone you know is under 18 years old and wants to get involved, please contact

What skills are APSEA volunteers taught?

During training, APSEA volunteers are taught how to measure blood pressure, blood glucose, interpret body composition measurements, and how to provide effective patient counseling.

What are donations used for?

Donations are used to fund equipment such as blood glucose monitors, blood pressure kits, blood glucose strips, bioimpedance devices, pulse oximetry devices, and A1c kits.
