Queens Gazette-Community Health Fair Educates, Entertains

Long Island City, NY
 – June 6, 2012 /Press Release/  –– 

"Let’s remember the most important things in life – family and health," City Comptroller John Liu said at the Mount Sinai Queens - United Community Civic Association (UCCA) Community Health Fair. The fair drew some 1,500 adults and children for what was billed as "a free day of fun for the entire family." Youngsters enjoyed face painting and Astoria Dance Centre students ranging in age from tots to teenagers performed in three afternoon sets. Food and opportunities for screening blood pressure, cholesterol level, bone density and asthma were free for all in attendance. Weather favored the fun, being overcast but never threatening rain, which helped keep the heat down. - Caryn Schwab, Executive Director, Mount Sinai Queens Learn more
