On Saturday, May 08, 2021, Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz, Jr., in conjunction with Westchester Square BID, hosted the borough’s annual Bronx Week Health Day Fair.

The event had free health screenings and provided resources and information on blood pressure, hearing, vision, dental, skin cholesterol, diabetes, BMI, behavioral health, testing for CoViD-19, HIV, HepatitisC, and much more. CoViD-19 vaccinations were available on site to the public. These health services are convenient, accessible, and free.

“For too many years prior to the pandemic, The Bronx has lagged behind in a number of health indicators, and the CoViD-19 pandemic has exacerbated these issues and disproportionately plagued our borough,” said Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz, Jr. “I am thrilled that we were able to continue the tradition of our annual Health Day Fair and bring much needed testing and resources to the Bronx.”

Now in its 49th year, Bronx Week is the annual celebration of everything that makes the Bronx a great place to live, work and raise a family.

Bronx Week is made possible with the generous support of Gold Sponsors Montefiore Medical Center, Empire BlueCross BlueShield and BronxCare Health System. Other Bronx Week sponsors include: ConEdison, Waste Management, Bronx Community College, Lehman College, Hostos, Lincoln Hospital, Pix11 and BronxNet.
