A free crash course on how residents can improve their health is taking place in Sunnyside this Sunday, with local experts gathering to share their expertise.
The event, dubbed the Sunnyside-Woodside Health Hour, will take place this Sunday, Oct. 14 at Bliss Plaza from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. — and will feature eight short presentations from local experts on areas ranging from nutrition to yoga.
The event will finish with a raffle where attendees will be eligible for gift certificates from various businesses.
Eric Barthels, the organizer of the event and owner of Cooldown Juice at 49-19 Skillman Ave., said the Health Hour is a good way for people in the neighborhood to get to know what local businesses are offering in the way of nutrition and fitness.
Barthels said he has selected a range of different presenters in order to make the Health Hour as educational as possible.
The Health Hour is also being sponsored by Sunnyside Shines, Sunnyside Community Services and The Sunnyside Post.
The full lineup is:
NYC Gymnastics Movement
Vanessa Denola—Massage Therapy
Supreme Team Boxing
Holly Toronto—Health & Body Image Coach
