Renaissance Home Health Care And Adult Day Services Hosted A Health Fair With Society In Action To Help Community Members Stay Healthy

Brooklyn, NY (May 30, 2014) — On Sunday, May 4, 2014, Renaissance Adult Day Services hosted the Spring
Into Health Fair created by Society In Action, Inc. at their Bedford location, 2625 Bedford Avenue in
Brooklyn, NY. Community members who attended the Spring Into Health Fair could receive free medical
information and testing including cholesterol testing, hearing tests, prostate screening, blood sugar testing,
vision exams, blood pressure screenings and more. Renaissance Home Health Care and Adult Day Services,
which provides in-home and in-location care that promotes social, physical, and emotional well-being to
residents of all five NY boroughs, was proud to offer their Bedford Center for the event.
Elsa Berrios, Social Model Director for the Bedford Renaissance Adult Day Services in Brooklyn, believes
that being a business in the community is a responsibility. “I was excited to open the Center to Society In
Action. We have a space that is not only large enough with private rooms for screenings, but is also located
in the heart of the community. Helping the entire community is our mission.”
Bernadette Gerard, CEO/President of Society in Action, couldn’t be more pleased to work so closely to the
Renaissance Adult Day Services Center in Brooklyn. “At Society in Action we strive to always be in action for
the well-being of our community. We are grateful to be able to create events with Renaissance that help us
to accomplish this goal.”
