Jazz Fest Pedometers

June 17, 2014

Music lovers encouraged to count their steps with free RGHS pedometers at annual Jazz Fest!

Each year at the Xerox Rochester International Jazz Festival, more than 100,000 attendees enjoy diverse musical acts in a sprawling downtown environment – all while walking thousands of steps daily, a key element in healthy living. During this year’s Jazz Fest (June 20-28) Rochester General Health System, a lead sponsor of the 2014 event, will give away belt-mounted pedometers at the RGHS booth on Gibbs Street, while supplies last. Attendees can use an online step counter at www.rochestergeneral.org/pedometer to compare their progress to other jazz fans.

Alone or as a part of a coordinated fitness routine, walking can help prevent conditions including obesity, diabetes, heart disease and stroke, high cholesterol and hypertension. The American Heart Association recommends at least 150 minutes per week of moderate exercise or 75 minutes per week of vigorous exercise.

In addition to sharing thousands of free pedometers, Rochester General Health System will have medical experts available in our Jazz Festival Tent to answers your questions on a variety of health topics:

  • 6/20 Orthopaedics
  • 6/21 Women’s Health
  • 6/22 Imaging
  • 6/23 Breast Care
  • 6/24 Heart Health
  • 6/25 Physical Therapy
  • 6/26 Diabetes
  • 6/27 Careers at RGHS
  • 6/28 Patient Safety

Rochester General Health System is also proud to staff the Medical Tent, located at the corner of Gibbs and Main Streets.
