Hundreds of locals explored more than a dozen Stony Brook Medicine services at the Greater Port Jefferson Chamber of Commerce’s 14th annual Health & Wellness Fest.
Stony Brook Medicine was the featured sponsor of the event, which aims to promote health and well-being among residents of all ages. More than 70 tables of vendors, demos and health screenings filled the ballrooms at the Meadow Club in Port Jefferson Station on Saturday, April 22.
“It was a pleasure to be back at the Port Jeff Health & Wellness Fest,” said Stony Brook University Hospital Community Relations Representative Erika Karp. “Our team enjoyed meeting with residents to highlight the incredible resources and specialty services available at Stony Brook Medicine.”
More than 25 Stony Brook employees were on hand, including representatives from Advanced Imaging; Bariatric and Metabolic Weight Loss Center; Carol M. Baldwin Breast Care Center; Children’s Hospital – Child Life Services; Department of Kidney Transplantation Services; Department of Urology; Heart Institute; North Suffolk Cardiology; OBGYN; and Women’s Pelvic Health & Continence Center.
Plus, staff from Human Resources’ Department of Talent Acquisition highlighted job opportunities; Stony Brook University’s Music and Medicine club provided entertainment; Community Relations highlighted upcoming events and programs; and even Wolfie made an appearance to showcase Stony Brook’s spirit and pride.
The Stony Brook Cancer Center’s Mobile Mammography Van also provided onsite mammograms, while nurse volunteers from the Heart Institute and Cardiothoracic ICU provided blood pressure screenings to more than 70 attendees.
