Leg. Abrahams at Roosevelt's Health Fair

Legislator Abrahams Sponsors Health Fair at Roosevelt Middle School

(Roosevelt, NY) - Nassau County Legislator Kevan Abrahams (D-Freeport) helped sponsor a very successful health fair at Roosevelt Middle School on Wednesday, April 4, 2012. In addition, the Nassau lawmaker signed up the middle school for the “Let’s Move” campaign, a program developed by First Lady Michelle Obama to solve the epidemic of childhood obesity within a generation.

Teachers escorted their classes throughout the day to take a 40-minute tour of booths put on display by faculty members, vendors, nutritionists, athletes and advocates of well-being. This event is held annually at the school and educates both students and staff about the importance of physical activity and making healthier food choices.

The health fair was made possible by the middle school in collaboration with NuHealth, Hofstra University and Legis. Abraham’s office.
