November Health Events in Astoria/LIC

Well, being busy got the best of me. I kept thinking I had to post the October Health events and now it’s the end of the month and I still didn’t post it.  And October is an important month in the health arena:  breast cancer awareness.  I am kicking myself for not being able to organize my time.  Breast cancer awareness is very important for everyone to know about.  If anyone can give me organization tips, I will greatly appreciate it.

Here are some NYC health events happening this month!
