Through September 4
Fixed in the public imagination as toothy, fearsome predators, sharks are far more fascinating, and more complex, than their depiction in popular culture. The reality is that most sharks pose no threat to people and, in fact, play a vital role in healthy ecosystems. Through life-size models, touch-free interactives, real fossils, and dynamic media presentations, visitors to Sharks can discover the incredible diversity of this intriguing group of fishes and learn about the conservation threats they are facing today.

NewYork-Presbyterian Lawrence Hospital is hosting a free oral cancer health screening with Columbia University College of Dental Medicine. Regular examination of your mouth, lips, tongue, teeth, and gums by an oral care specialist can help spot oral cancer, precancers, tooth decay, and other problems early, when they are most treatable. NewYork-Presbyterian Lawrence Hospital is providing a free 20-minute oral health screening for adults aged 18 and older by dentists, dental hygienists, and other oral healthcare providers. If the examination shows that you need additional care, we can connect you with an oral care provider for follow-up. Spanish-speaking providers will be available.
