Annual Health Fair Is Well Attended
The 12th annual Mount Sinai Queens/United Community Civic Association (UCCA) Community Health Fair, was held on June 2 at Immaculate Conception Church between 31st and 29th Streets, just north of Ditmars Boulevard, in Astoria. The fair drew some 1,500 adults and children between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. 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.
“We are proud of our long partnership with Mount Sinai Queens and are so happy to bring health awareness and information to our community,” said UCCA President Rose Marie Poveromo.
