St. Catherine of Siena Medical Center is holding its final Board "Walk" Your Way to Wellness for 2015 on Tuesday, Sept. 15 at Sunken Meadow State Park. Health professionals from the Smithtown-based hospital will provide free blood-pressure tests and other health screenings, but the main idea is to show how even a simple daily walk can help physical fitness and improve health. The medical center traditionally holds five boardwalk events a year, beginning in May, so there's going to be a lot of winter to get through before the next one.

The screenings and walk begin at 5 p.m. at the main boardwalk entrance. For more information, call 631-870-3444. Free parking after 4 p.m.
