Mount Sinai Queens and the United Community Civic Association (UCCA) hosted the 19th annual Community Health Fair on Saturday, June 2, at the outdoor stage of Kaufman Astoria Studios at 36th Street and 35th Avenue. Open to the public, the free health fair is a day of health screenings and education, and fun activities for the entire family. “Mount Sinai Queens works hard to get the people in our community healthy and keep them healthy,” said Caryn A. Schwab, Executive Director of Mount Sinai Queens. “The health fair is an excellent opportunity to learn some basic personal health information and about how to use this information to improve your health and the health of your family.” Brijen Shah, MD, chief medical officer and vice president of medical affairs at Mount Sinai Queens said, “By educating the public and providing free screenings, we can help improve the health of our community. Doctors, nurses, other health care workers and staff volunteer their time to offer lectures and workshops, health screenings, and interactive programs on a wide range of health issues that we hope will empower people to make healthy lifestyle choices, which will, in turn, lead to a healthier population.”
