Signature Fitness in Belleville, hosted Clara Maass Medical Center (CMMC) for a Men’s Health Expo on Sunday, Jan 26. Gym goers interrupted their workouts for a health check. CMMC provided nurses to take blood pressure and blood sugar readings. Weight loss professionals were on hand to provide nutrition advice, discuss weight loss options and calculate BMI. A large walk-through inflatable colon was on display where participants were educated about colon health and recommended screenings. In keeping with the Super Bowl theme, the Sodexo food and nutrition team offered healthy game day snack samples and recipes. “We welcomed a much younger crowd than we typically capture at community health events,” said Jill Wargo, Director of the Cancer Center at CMMC. “The event was in line with Barnabas Health’s initiative to encourage preventative measures and maintain good health at an early stage in life.”
