Stroke

Community Health Day is a time when Morristown Medical Center joins with the faith-based community and other local organizations in a celebration of wellness and family fun. Now in its 24th year, the event will feature free health screenings, including blood pressure, cholesterol, glucose, HIV, oral cancer and more. We’ll also have live music, raffle prizes, Zumba demonstrations and children’s activities, among other entertainment. Community Health Day, which is funded by the Foundation for Morristown Medical Center, takes place on Saturday, September 7 from 9:00am to 1:00pm at the Headquarters Plaza Complex, located at 2 Speedwell Avenue in Morristown, NJ. If you would like to join a walkathon to the event, please arrive at 8:00am at Goryeb Children’s Hospital (Franklin Street entrance).
