On October 2, the atmosphere was festive and uplifting at the American Heart Association's Westchester County Heart Walk at the Kensico Dam in Valhalla, N.Y. The New York Medical College team was front and center in their bright red tee shirts and was one of the top fundraising teams, raising more than $6,000 to fight heart disease, stroke and other cardiovascular diseases. D. Douglas Miller, M.D., C.M., M.B.A., dean of the School of Medicine served as executive champion of the walk. The event was kicked off by the Arrhythmias, the School of Medicine acapella group, singing the National Anthem. Doctor of Physical Therapy (D.P.T.) students then took to the stage to lead a dynamic warm-up for the crowd before they embarked on the three-mile walk. They also offered screenings and health tips throughout the day. View the 2016 Westchester County Heart Walk photo gallery here.
