Crouse Hospital staff were out in the community again yesterday fulfilling the hospital's mission of promoting community health. We were honored to join the West Side Community Health & Wellness Fair at the Huntington Family Center on Gifford St. Our staff, including Sue Britt, RN, (in photo) provided free heart health screenings to 83 people during the three-hour event. The screenings included readings for total cholesterol, glucose and blood pressure, plus a personal risk profile. Crouse healthcare providers reviewed the results with those tested.
Since 1919, the Huntington Family Center has provided diverse, year-round programming designed to strengthen individuals and families in a safe, caring environment. Huntington helps each individual to develop and grow to their fullest potential through three areas of programming: Youth Development, Family Development and Adult Development.
