A Message from Carol Daly, Director of Health & Wellness
Thank you all for the very warm welcome! I am very happy to have the opportunity to serve as your new Health & Wellness Director in the vibrant and beautiful community of the Center for Adults Living Well at the YM & YWHA of Washington Heights.
August is National Immunization Awareness Month and an important part of your Personal Wellness Program. Immunizations are the most effective way to prevent you from getting many common infectious diseases. It is recommended that people over the age of 60 get the flu, Tdap, pneumonia and shingles vaccine and talk to your doctor about what vaccines you might need.
During the hot weather, please stay hydrated and avoid becoming overheated. You can find information sheets on immunizations and staying cool in the warmer weather at the volunteer desk. We also have new programs this month listed in the calendar. I look forward to meeting all of you!
