The Mount Sinai Medical Center Provides Free Screenings at ¡Vive tu vida! Get Up! Get Moving!® Event in the Bronx
On Sunday, September 9th, representatives from the Mount Sinai Medical Center attended the 7th annual Live your life! Get Up! Get Moving! ® health and wellness event, hosted by the Hispanic Federation along with the National Alliance for Hispanic Health. During the event, which promotes physical activity and healthy nutrition, attendees were able to participate in a variety of health screenings and physical activities, including sports, yoga, and salsa dancing. Representatives from Mount Sinai were on site, offering blood pressure readings, blood glucose and Hepatitis C testing free of charge. The response was overwhelmingly positive, as Mount Sinai’s booth had a consistent flow of attendees, and we were able to identify several at-risk individuals and refer them to specialists for treatment.
