When the academic world partners with the non-profit world, good things can come about. Here is one of them. This Saturday (April 30), there is a public Community Health and Fitness Day from 9:30 AM-3:00pm in Harlem. The event will be hosted by Duke University in partnership with The Children’s Aid Society at the Dunlevy Milbank Boys & Girls Club, where members of the Duke Club of New York volunteer monthly. Dunlevy Milbank Boys & Girls Club is located at 14-32 West 118th Street in Harlem.
The event will offer locals, FREE of charge, basic medical screenings, fitness classes, nutrition/wellness seminars, and healthy cooking classes to encourage lifestyle choices that help prevent diabetes, hypertension, obesity, and other preventable medical conditions. Duke Club of New York anticipates serving approximately 400 local residents (adults and children) from Harlem, with the participation and support of more than 100 Duke University alumni volunteers.
So if any of you know of someone that is in need of a health screening, please pass this information along!
