Welcome from Bronx Borough President
Ruben Diaz Jr.

The expo will provide information and resources to the community to foster healthy lifestyles, increase understanding of health issues and risk factors and enhance management of special needs or chronic conditions.  At the same time, it is an opportunity to learn about careers in health by watching our students and faculty in action and by speaking with students or faculty in health profession programs.

The event is wheelchair accessible.  Free parking and shuttle service will be provided to campus from Westchester Square, Bay Plaza and other locations.
