New Community’s Resident Services Department hosted its annual Wear Red Event Feb. 21 at Douglas Homes, 15 Hill St., Newark, for the men and women of NCC. February is American Heart Month and the event highlighted cardiovascular disease and ways to reduce the risk. Attendees enjoyed a heart-healthy meal prepared by Culinary Arts Specialist students at New Community Career & Technical Institute and health screenings. They also wrote down changes to their daily lives that they plan to make to increase heart health. Their words were displayed on the wall for all to see.
Resident Services would like to thank the following groups for their support and participation: American Heart Association, American Stroke Association, Bishop Speight, Guardy’s Pharmacy, Paparazzi Jewelry and Assurance Wireless.
