education, primary care and personal health management programs.

physicians’ groups and functions as a clinical practice site for nurse
practitioner students in the Lienhard School.

people can tour the facilities, meet the staff, and receive
educational materials and free fitness screenings measuring body fat
composition, blood pressure, weight and flexibility. The open houses

p.m. on the following dates: Wednesday, September 24, White Plains
campus, 27 Crane Ave.; Wednesday, October 8, Pleasantville campus, 861

Underserved and Vulnerable Populations, which is part of the greater
“Models that Work” Campaign, sponsored by the U.S. Department of
Health and Human Services, to identify and promote innovations in the
