Health Fairs and Street Fairs
Bringing health awareness to your neighborhood
As part of our commitment to health and health awareness, NYM participates in community health fairs and street fairs in Brooklyn. If we have volunteers and/or health professionals and the appropriate materials, we may be able to staff a table providing information about the Hospital and its services, and/or offer screenings and health information on a variety of topics.
If you would like to request that the Hospital participate in a community event, contact the Department of Public Affairs by email or call 718.780.5367. Please make your request at least six-to-eight weeks prior to the date of the scheduled event so that we have sufficient time to assess our resources and make the necessary preparations. Because of the high volume of requests received for events falling in the spring and summer months, we advise event planners to make their spring and summer requests as early as possible.
New York Methodist Hospital also periodically hosts in-house health fairs to raise awareness around prevention and treatment of various health conditions affecting the communities we serve. To stay informed about what in-house NYM health fairs are coming up, read through this month's calendar items on the bottom right-hand corner of the "In the News" section of the NYM homepage or join us on Facebook, (see button at the bottom of this page).
