There’s no better way to show your mom you care than by making sure she’s healthy! Moms around the world are so busy taking care of their families that they often don’t worry about their own health.

In honor of Mother’s Day, and National Women’s Health Week (May 13 – May 19), take your mom to BODIES…The Exhibition and learn more about staying heart healthy on Saturday, May 12, 11 Fulton Street, between 1:00 p.m. and 5:00 p.m.

Premier Exhibitions, Inc.- the producer of BODIES…The Exhibition – and Continuum Health Partners are teaming up to bring visitors complimentary blood pressure screenings and risk factor evaluations, with the price of admission. Women’s heart expert Dr. Merle Myerson of St. Luke’s-Roosevelt Hospital will conduct the screenings.

According to the American Heart Association, heart disease is the number one killer of women in America. The screenings can help identify women who may be more susceptible to heart disease, so it can be detected and prevented early.
