The nurse, Sarah Perko, RN, will provide screenings, conduct health education classes and answer health and nutrition questions of members.
Perko earned her degree at East Carolina University in 1997. She earned a Master of Healthcare Administration degree from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 2002 and was awarded an Administrative Fellowship at New Hanover Regional Hospital in Wilmington. Perko worked in pharmaceutical clinical research for 10 years.
"I am very excited to be able to share my love of nursing and passion for wellness with the members at the Spears YMCA," said Perko.
