Last Friday, volunteers from WCCC attended a Health Fair at Lenox Hill Neighborhood House for their Keeping Families Healthy month. In addition to providing information about the services WCCC provides, volunteers also worked to better educate participants about their health. There were didden sugar demonstrations and discussed healthy alternatives. Participants guessed the amount of added sugar in typical products and were surprised to see the high added amounts. They were also educated on recommended daily allowance for added sugar and healthy alternatives. In addition, WCCC partnered with another Weill Cornell medical student organization Heart to Heart for screenings of blood cholesterol and glucose and provided counseling to the participants on their levels and how to interpret them.
