Catholic Charities Encourages Health and Fitness All-Year Round with Wellness Workshop

CCBQ’s Community Program Services recently held the first of three sessions of the Keep on Track Blood Pressure Screening and Nutrition Workshop at the Transitional Services for New York Inc., (TSI) PROS Program in Jamaica, Queens. Over 20 participants had their blood pressure tested to ensure healthy blood pressure. Attendees indulged in fruit-infused water samplings which included yummy orange, ginger, cucumber and lime (a great recipe to stay cool during the overly humid days!) Participants went home with a portion plate and chart to help with meal-planning at home. Some lucky attendees won flavor-infusing water bottles, portable salad bowls for healthy eating on-the-go and $25 TD Bank gift cards.
