Our Heart Health Seminar on January 24th was a great event! Over 100 women came to Old Stone Church Fellowship Hall to hear Dr. Benita Burke, Medical Director of Valley Medical Group’s Heart Care for Women, discuss preventative measures we can all take to avoid heart disease, as well as signs and symptoms of heart attacks in women.
Dr. Burke was accompanied by Deb Rath RN, BSN, Director of Valley’s free Thrive Program, who explained the “health program with a fun twist,” and offered attendees the opportunity to sign up for a free comprehensive cardiovascular screening.
Jon Goldstein of B&M Market in Park Ridge generously donated and served samples of heart healthy foods, and gave information about healthy, pre-portioned prepared take-out meals available at his market. Jon also donated 25 gift cards to attendees. The evening was organized by our club’s Health and Wellness Chair, Carol Shulman, who is a Health Coach in Integrative Nutrition.
