Community Programs & Events
Kingsbrook Jewish Medical Center is dedicated to responding to the unique
health care needs of one of Brooklyn’s most culturally-diverse communities.
As such, Health & Wellness Education has always been at the helm of
Kingsbrook’s Public Affairs and Community Outreach initiatives.
Every year, Kingsbrook implements seminars, educational newsletters, and
early detection initiatives that expose our residents to invaluable information
and opportunities to help maintain ultimate health.
Our special programs and events create a heightened awareness in our community,
helping combat illnesses that are affecting us at epidemic proportions.
Our hope is not just to treat illness, but ensure that those who are at-risk
remain healthy. Understanding that early detection and prevention are
essential to maintain ultimate health, Kingsbrook uses these mediums to
encourage an informed, health-conscious community.

that combines chest compression often with artificial ventilation in an

are taken to restore spontaneous blood circulation and breathing in a
person who is in cardiac arrest. It is indicated in those who are unresponsive
with no breathing or abnormal breathing, CPR certification cards are obtained
after this course. Call Kingsbrook's Community Information Line at
