Promoting health and wellness in West Hempstead

Clinical and non-clinical health care professionals from various service lines and specialties were on hand to speak to students about topics such as nutrition, dental health, stretching, staying active, bike safety and others.

District officials thanked the PTA and Cohen Children’s Medical Center for stressing the importance of many health and wellness topics to the students.
