U.S. Senator Robert Menendez (D-NJ) hosted a “Children’s Health Day” at the Jewish Renaissance Medical Center in Perth Amboy Tuesday, August 28.
Children received free dental and obesity screenings as well as participated in a nutrition information session where teachers spoke with children about good eating habits. Senator Menendez’s staff was also on hand to meet with constituents and answer questions.
“I’m proud to join with the Jewish Renaissance Medical Center to provide our children with necessary screenings,” said Senator Menendez in a statement. “A healthy start helps our children reach their fullest potential. That’s why it has been a priority of mine in the Senate to make sure that all children, regardless of their parent’s income level, have access to quality care. And as long as I’m in the Senate, I will continue to fight for investments in our community health centers.”
