Kingsbrook's Best Health School is a new prevention and wellness initiative that provides a year-long health & wellness curriculum for the community. This unique model provides a wide range of wellness education to choose from, including essential classes for CPR and Stroke Awareness. The program is designed to build a heightened awareness to health disparities and risk factors and offers a certificate of completion to partcipants. This effort is supported and championed by Kingsbrook's Community Leadership Council which is comprised of members of the community, faith leaders and health partners who share our mission of providing the very best prevention and wellness modules to our community.
