Women’s Health & Wellness Event

A new location, the Hudson Chamber of Commerce Building at Front Street and Warren Street, welcomed the Women’s Health Project from 1:00 to 2:30 p.m. for a Women’s Health & Wellness Event on Thursday, October 18, 2012.

The event allowed participants to learn more about local organizations that provide health care services, to sign up for services, and to receive taxi vouchers for rides to and from women’s health services within Hudson. Organizations participating in the health resource fair include the Columbia County Community Healthcare Consortium, Columbia County Department of Health, Promise Neighborhood, Upper Hudson Planned Parenthood, WIC (Women, Infants and Children), Women’s Health Project Peers, and the Women’s Health Project Taxi Voucher Program.

The event also included prize drawings, refreshments, and special holiday activities for children.

The event was the 22nd in a series of free health events offered by the Women’s Health Project, a community-based initiative of the Center for the Elimination of Minority Health Disparities at the University at Albany.
