February is National Heart Health Month and seniors can learn about their risks for heart attack or stroke, as well as enjoy a free breakfast, on Wednesday, Feb. 28, at St. Joseph Medical Center in The Heights.
The St. Joseph AngioScreen® Team will provide an overview of risk factors and explain what you can do to maintain a healthy heart. The AngioScreen® mobile program is a non-invasive mobile screening program to offer consumers important information about their vascular health and the risk of heart disease or stroke.
Every 40 seconds, someone has a heart attack in the U.S. and every four minutes, someone dies of stroke, according to the American Heart Association.
The free event takes place at St. Joseph Medical Center in the Heights from 8-9:30 a.m. in the fourth floor meeting room of the hospital located at 1917 Ashland Street. Seating is limited and reservations can be made by calling 713-969-5376 by 2 p.m., Monday, Feb. 26.
