June 11, 2017 @ 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm


Family-Friendly, Free Event on Sunday, June 11

NewYork-Presbyterian Queens will present TWIST & SPROUT!—a family-friendly, free event—on Sunday, June 11, from 12:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. at Queens Botanical Garden, 43-50 Main Street, Flushing. Families will learn about health and wellness, nutrition, ways to safely enjoy exercising and other outdoor activities, as well as the many delights of being in a garden.

TWIST & SPROUT! will feature entertainment and fun for the whole family, including cooking demonstrations, family workouts and the opportunity to interact with NewYork-Presbyterian Queens’ doctors, nurses and staff. Queens Botanical Garden staff will plant herbs with kids and introduce them to fruit and vegetable crafts.

TWIST & SPROUT! was inspired by the pediatric residents from Weill Cornell Medicine during their training in community pediatrics at NewYork-Presbyterian Queens. The residents took a lead role in organizing and shaping the afternoon’s programming, and will be on hand to engage with the community and offer health tips.
