Free Community Wellness Event Promotes Healthy Living

New York, NY – On August 12, Amida Care, a not-for-profit New York community health plan, hosted a free “Music, Fun and Dance” event at the “Soul Summit Music Festival” at Fort Greene Park Conservancy in Brooklyn. The afternoon included an interactive dance and exercise class with fitness instructor Nakisha Ross of Alwayz Fit 4 Lyfe. 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).

“Amida Care puts the whole person at the center of everything we do. While doctor’s appointments and prescribed medications are necessary components of being healthy, especially for those living with chronic conditions, we know that this is only part of a healthy lifestyle. Our ‘Live Your Life’ events encourage New Yorkers to address their social, physical, and emotional needs. We’re grateful for the support of NYC Council Majority Leader Cumbo to help promote 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 and fitness classes, the events cover topics such as healthy cooking, art therapy, meditation, aromatherapy, and more.
