Contact InformationThe Center for Women's Health is partnering with the New York Academy of Medicine to reduce vascular disease among high-risk members of choral groups at churches in Washington Heights-Inwood and Northern Manhattan. The plan is to increase awareness and knowlege of cardiovavascular disease and stroke among the high-risk members of a team such as a chorus. This year-long community health program is aimed at increasing awareness of Heart Disease and Stroke and promoting healthy living,by focusing on positive approaches to change behavior to impact individual healthy lifestyles.
