New York, NY
NewYork-Presbyterian is now the official hospital of United States Tennis Association (USTA) Eastern. Through a sponsorship announced today, the organizations will work together to promote health through the sport of tennis.
NewYork-Presbyterian leaders, physicians and wellness experts will provide health education and resources for the more than 49,000 USTA Eastern members, made up of children and adults, and the local community. NewYork-Presbyterian doctors – from orthopedists and behavioral health care providers to pediatricians and cardiologists – will be participating at USTA Eastern tennis clinics, conferences, and tournaments to educate members and the community about ways to improve their health and well-being, through the sport of tennis and in their daily routines and lives. In recent years, multiple studies have affirmed the many physical, mental, and social health benefits of the sport and the organizations will work together to promote those findings to the local community.
“NewYork-Presbyterian and USTA Eastern share a commitment to improving the health of all the communities we serve and promoting an active lifestyle,” said Devika Mathrani, senior vice president and chief marketing and communications officer at NewYork-Presbyterian. “We are so pleased to be collaborating with USTA Eastern to help New Yorkers stay amazing by prioritizing their health and well-being.”
“We are thrilled to partner with NewYork-Presbyterian,” said Jennifer Schnitzer, executive director and CEO of USTA Eastern. “We have made it a part of our mission to share the benefits of tennis to our members and the public, and we feel very fortunate to be able to do so alongside an organization renowned for its longtime commitment to community health.”
The events will be held throughout the regions USTA Eastern serves: New York, northern New Jersey, and Greenwich, Connecticut. NewYork-Presbyterian will also share content with USTA Eastern members about health and wellness through USTA Eastern’s newsletter, social media and website.
