The event was an incredible success, with more than 2,000 attendees receiving screening for critical health issues such as hypertension and high blood sugar.
For the 60% of participants that had either high blood pressure or high blood sugar, LRBC ensured that they all received PCP referrals and a plan of action for the future so they can work on making health a number one priority.
“Like many others I thought to myself, “everything is okay” and I would just go for the sake of amusing myself,” said one participant. “As it turned out, the health screening was a true life saver for me. The EMT detected an irregular heartbeat that was immediately confirmed by an EKG. I am now under [the right] care and with medication, it will be iy’’h controlled. Thank you to the Bikur Cholim Staff and all the health care staff for giving their time.”
LRBC stated, “The entire LRBC team would like to extend our gratitude to all the event sponsors and partners: Lake Terrace, the Towne Group, Chai Care, The Lakewood Scoop, BINA, Chemed, Hatzolah of Central Jersey, and Chief Gregory Meyer and Alex Guzman of the Lakewood Police Dept for contributing to the event’s overwhelming success.”
