Fitness Can Be Fun!
The University of Maryland Medical System's annual community event, "Spring Into Good Health," had people of all ages dancing in the middle of a mall!
The UMMS Community Outreach and Advocacy Committee this year wanted to put a focus on fitness and hosted a dance party in Mondawmin Mall along with free health screenings for cholesterol, blood pressure and more.
Hundreds of people came to the event on April 4, 2012 where they could also talk one-on-one with University of Maryland Medical System health professionals and pick up information on menâ€™s and womenâ€™s health, child safety, nutrition and more.

Five of the 12 hospitals in the University of Maryland Medical System took part in Spring Into Good Health: University of Maryland Medical Center, Maryland General Hospital, Kernan Orthopaedics and Rehabilitation Hospital, University Specialty Hospital and Mt. Washington Pediatric Hospital. The event was also sponsored by Maryland Physicians Care, Total Health Care, Coppin State University School of Nursing and Radio One, Baltimore.
