More than 775 staff and visitors attended health fairs sponsored by Mount Sinai Heart on Friday, February 5, Go Red for Women Day®, an annual educational event that spotlights the risks of cardiovascular disease. Participants received free screenings for high blood pressure, cholesterol, weight, glucose, and peripheral vascular disease, and learned about nutrition and diet, diabetes, stress management, smoking cessation, and relaxation techniques. Other events included exercise workshops, support group meetings, and educational lectures sponsored by Women’s Heart NY, a comprehensive Mount Sinai Health System heart program.
