Free Community Wellness Event Promotes Healthy Living

New York, NY – On June 2, Amida Care, a not-for-profit New York community health plan hosted “Dance for Fun and Fitness” at the Atlantic Terminal Community Center in Brooklyn. The free community event included a fun dance and exercise class with fitness instructor Royelle McKenzie of Boulay360. This event is part of Amida Care’s “Live Your Life” program, designed to keep healthy and active lifestyles at the center of New Yorkers’ everyday lives. The event was made possible with support from NYC Council Majority Leader Laurie A. Cumbo (Brooklyn District 35).

“At Amida Care, we believe that a holistic approach is beneficial for healthy living. While regular check-ups, doctors’ visits, and taking your prescribed medication are absolutely necessary for those living with chronic conditions, we know that going beyond that will help you live your healthiest life. That’s why we offer our ‘Live Your Life’ events that cover all aspects of a person’s health, including fitness, healthy food, and mental wellbeing. We’re grateful for the support of NYC Council Majority Leader Cumbo, who supports healthy living 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 cover topics such as healthy cooking, art therapy, fitness, meditation, aromatherapy, and more.

“Amida Care members are fortunate to have a health plan that goes above and beyond when it comes to taking care of their health. Events like ‘Dance for Fun and Fitness’ give Brooklyn residents the chance to see that living a healthy, active lifestyle can be fun too! These ‘Live Your Life’ events show Amida Care’s commitment to our communities, and I am excited and proud to work with them to help Brooklyn residents live their lives in the best way possible,” said New York City Council Majority Leader Laurie A. Cumbo.
