Learn how to become heart smart

December 13, 2012 by  

While some people are prescribed with medication to keep a check on their cholesterol levels, there are other ways to improve cholesterol without the need for pills, such as following a special diet and keeping track of various blood levels. The Washington Adventist Hospital in Takoma Park will be holding an event in early January to teach people how to eat more healthily and to promote healthier living, showing that it does not necessarily have to be a chore to do so.

Get Heart Smart for 2013 will feature several cooking demonstrations, food sampling, and health screenings. Everyone attending will have a chance to win an iPad. The types of free health screenings that will be offered are blood pressure and body composition. It will also give those attending the chance to ask questions of health and nutrition specialists and find out what if best for them.

Those interested in their heart health, even if they live in nearby communities such as Laurel, will no doubt want to take the short trip to attend this important event. Printing companies in the area will likely be called upon to help design and print informative literature which will be handed out to interested parties. Brochure printers may be asked to produce health-related handouts.

Get Heart Smart for 2013 will take place in the cafeteria at the Washington Adventist Hospital in Takoma Park on January 9, beginning at 6:00 pm. For more information, contact Diana Troese at 301-891-6560.
