The Jacksonville Section of NCNW – Health and Disparities Committee in partnership with Baptist Health Care and YMCA North came together to offer the community a “Fit For Life Heart Health Free Event”. Baptist Health Care provided registered nurses who educated visitors of the importance of heart health and nutrition. Baptist Health Care nurses administered body mass index, blood pressure and heart rate screenings to each participant. YMCA North provided certified zumba trainers to offer fitness to all that were interested.
Overall, “Fit for Life Heart Health Event” was a major success that further supported the health and disparities platform by continuing to identify outreach and engagement opportunities where the All of Us Research Program can be introduced and information shared.
