Health was in the spotlight at a Bay Ridge street fair Saturday, June 30.

The second annual “Rock the Block” celebration, hosted by Artisans of Medicine (AOM) and the Arab American Association of New York (AAANY), encompassed Bay Ridge Avenue between Fourth and Fifth Avenues for an afternoon of fun and free health screenings.

“The AOM block party is a scheduled annual health fair and community event that looks to help people screen for the common diseases like diabetes and hypertension as well as involve and bring together all the members of the community to have some fun,” said Dr. Ramsey Joudeh of AOM.

The event, which was open to the public, featured cultural performances, face painting, raffles, prizes, food and more.
