Health screenings for West Harlem

A specially designed Wellness Center on the ground floor of the Jerome L. Greene Science Center , located at 3227 Broadway, will provide health resources to serve area residents. Physicians from Columbia University Medical Center will host community-based initiatives that train members of the Harlem community and beyond to become health advocates to prevent stroke and promote mental health.

The Wellness Center will provide free blood pressure readings and cholesterol tests on weekdays and select weekends to all who walk in. Visitors will be given a record of their results, available upon request to their health provider, as well as information on ways they can improve their health. Wellness Center staff will offer information on free and low-cost clinical resources in the neighborhood and within the New York-Presbyterian/Columbia University Medical Center community.
