Kingsbrook Health Fair Is Fun And Informative

Scores of local residents showed up last Saturday for Kingsbrook Jewish Medical Center’s annual community health fair on Schenectady Avenue, between Rutland Road and Winthrop Street. Those who came had access to an abundance of health care information, covering a variety of topics including weight loss and proper nutrition, diabetes, mental health, dental care and smoking prevention. In addition to the advice, adults and youngsters availed themselves of entertaining activities and live music.
