March 7, 2019

On March 2, Amida Care and the Atlantic Terminal Tenants’ Association hosted the fifth annual Black History Month event at the Lafayette Avenue Presbyterian Church in Brooklyn. Community members of all ages came together for a fun-filled afternoon that included an interactive African music and dance workshop. The free event was part of Amida Care’s “Live Your Life” program designed to keep healthy and active lifestyle habits at the center of people’s everyday lives.  The event was made possible with support from New York City Council Majority Leader Laurie A. Cumbo.

“We know that wellness is about so much more than doctor’s visits and medications. By addressing every aspect of a person’s well-being – physical, mental, and spiritual health – we take care of the whole person and support them in living their most authentic lives. That’s exactly what our ‘Live Your Life’ events are all about. We’re grateful for the support of New York City Council Majority Leader Cumbo who continues to be a champion for health and wellness in Brooklyn,” said Doug Wirth, President and CEO of Amida Care

Amida Care holds monthly “Live Your Life” wellness events throughout the five boroughs of New York City, where members and their guests learn about ways to get and stay healthy. In addition to dance classes, the events include activities such as art therapy, healthy cooking, meditation, aromatherapy, and more.

Amida Care goes above and beyond to promote access to holistic, quality health care. Programs like their ‘Live Your Life’ series show Amida Care’s commitment to the community and ensure that Brooklyn residents have the tools they need to make healthy life choices year-round. I am excited to continue to work with such a great partner to work towards a healthier, happier Brooklyn,” said Majority Leader Laurie A. Cumbo.
