Health screenings and live entertainment combined at one Bronx Week event

(06/20/04) KINGSBRIDGE HEIGHTS - One Bronx Week 2004 event on Sunday combined entertainment with health education.

Bronx residents went to Harris Park in Kingsbridge Heights for the Family Games and Concert Series. There, they listened to salsa legends while learning about healthy living.

Healthcare organization HealthFirst sponsored the event. In addition to games, concerts and food, organizers also gave blood, cholesterol and vision screenings. The goal they say is for Bronx residents to have fun and learn how to live healthy at the same time.
