On Saturday, August 22nd members of the Family Medicine Department and Bronx-Lebanon Mobile Unit were out supporting another great community cause.  Bringing the Peace, an annual event aimed at educating and encouraging community members to lead by example, and help put a stop to unnecessary and senseless violence took place at 169th and 3rd Ave. in the Bronx. Health education materials were handed out, insurance enrollment, group games, bike safety and riding education, food, and an inter-building basketball game were all on the agenda.

Bringing the Peace was coordinated and supported by various Claremont Healthy Village Initiative partners, including HealthFirst, NYC Parks Department, the Claremont Neighborhood Center, the Robert Fulton Terrace Resident Association and others.  Thank you to all who came out to support the event!
