Power NYC Health & Empowerment Symposium

May 30, 2009 – The day-long Power New York City Health & Empowerment Symposium at Columbia University was a landmark event sponsored by the American Heart Association (AHA) and I had the honor of hosting. The event offered inspirational talks, self-management tools, health screenings, and discussions on “total health” including healthy eating, mental health, oral health, skincare, disease management and prevention. I have been volunteering for AHA for a number of years and then was named a National Spokesperson, Ambassador and Power Advocate. View pictures and watch the overview video below.
