The CT Convergence Institute Provides JUMP Program Focused on Heart Health to Parkville Senior Center

Parkville heart health


On November 7th, Dr. Helen Wu, Dr. Narinder Maheshwari and the community outreach team visited Parkville Senior Center in Hartford to provide a JUMP program on heart health. Attendees learned about articular fibrillation and the importance of maintaining a healthy heart. The interactive demonstration concluded with participants receiving take-home pedometers and placing stickers on activity tracking boards which aims to track their steps over time. The JUMP Program falls under the CT Community Health Science Initiative which aims to educate the community on the importance of starting or maintaining a healthy lifestyle via nutrition and physical activity.

Thank you Aetna Foundation for making this program possible.
