On Saturday, April 16th Jumpstart hosted a "Spring into Reading" event at the Phipps Neighborhood Rec Center inside Crotona Park. Local organizations banded together promoting school readiness while creating an afternoon full of arts & crafts, games, raffles, giveaways and literacy resources. It was a beautiful day full of sunshine and children’s smiles. Practice Manager, Michael Sledzinski, and two volunteer medical students were representing the Department of Family Medicine at the event. The group was prepared with incentives and brochures, as well as offered free blood pressure tests to all participants. Mike and his team spoke with community members about the Department's five outpatient clinics advocating the high quality of care demonstrated by Family Medicine Physicians. The Department’s appearance in this community event was truly appreciated by all those in attendance.
