In an effort to reduce heart disease in Calvert County, Calvert Memorial Hospital is hosting a Healthy Heart Expo on Thursday, February 21 from 5:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. in the Outpatient Concourse at the hospital.
Participants can have their personal cardiac risk assessed and many free health screenings: vascular, blood pressure, body composition analysis and lung function testing. There will be health professionals available to discuss diabetes education and smoking cessation as well as opportunities to have a one-on-one conversation with Ask-the-Doctor, Pharmacist and Nurse. Heart healthy refreshments will be served.
Preregistration is required for the personal cardiac risk assessment and vascular screening.
To make appointments, call 410-535-8233 or 301-855-1012 ext.8233.
Margaret Fowler, Director of Community Wellness at CMH, says, “The mortality rate from heart disease in Calvert County is higher than the State. Join us and let us help you take care of yours!
