Winter Health Events in Astoria

First of all, I have to apologize for my readers for being MIA for a few months.  With the holidays and juggling work with my free time, proved to be very challenging to me.  I have caught up and have established a schedule and here I am blogging again at Today’s Mama. Thanks for your patience.

Each year many of us make New Year’s resolutions and health is usually top on the list. I am providing readers of Today’s Mama living in the surrounding New York City area a list of health events.
