Community

Events and Activities

Montefiore, its departments, programs and health partners regularly host a number of events throughout the year to educate, engage and inform members of the communities we serve.

This regular “boots on the ground,” hands-on outreach is critical. It’s typically the first step toward creating the relationships and understanding needed to improve the overall health and wellness of people who might otherwise not have immediate access to care.  

We encourage you to find and attend a health-related event in your community. In addition to the free giveaways, activities and fun you’ll pick up something even more valuable—a greater understanding of how Montefiore can help you and your family in your journey towards living a healthier life. Look for us at:
