Despite the threat of rain (which finally did come down), Brooklyn residents turned out in large numbers for UHB's 27th Annual Community Health Fair on May 18. Held in celebration of National Hospital Week, the fair offered free health screenings for diabetes, stroke, hearing, metabolic syndrome, and various cancers, as well as entertainment for the younger set in the form of pony rides, face painting, and steel drums.

"Our annual community fair is part of our commitment to foster greater awareness of the benefits of a healthy lifestyle and regular preventive care," says Maria Yomtov, MSN , RN, CDE, director of the Center for Community Health Promotion and Wellness."
