Cornell Cooperative Extension Onondaga County (CCEOC) participated in the Healthy Hearts, Healthy Families- Syracuse City School District event on February 2, 2018 at Institute of Technology at Syracuse Central. CCEOC facilitated the Mystery Box interactive activity with the families in attendance so they could relate to a variety of fruits and vegetables choices. CCEOC also provided a food demonstration featuring bean and broccoli quesadillas. During the family dinner a panel discussion took place that focused adopting heart-healthy lifestyles with nutrition and physical activity. SUNY Upstate Pediatrician, Dr. Joe Nimeh, and volunteers from the American Heart Association gave presentations on the importance of adopting healthy behaviors with food and physical activity.
