Every February, Angel Medical Center staff members are asked to put on their red in support of Heart Health Month.
On Monday, Feb. 3, staff and volunteers met in the dining room to recognize the American Heart Association’s Wear Red campaign. This campaign focuses on raising awareness about heart disease especially in women.
Heart disease is a leading killer of both men and women. Tom Forkner, director of Cardiac/Pulmonary Rehab, led the staff on some simple exercises and how to incorporate them into their daily lives.
A Lunch and Learn with Dr. Kit Helm will be held on Thursday, Feb. 27, for two sessions, one at 11:45 a.m. and the second one at 12:15, on “Heart Healthy Living: An Update” in the back of the AMC dining room. The sessions are free, no registration is required and are open to the public.
For more information on any of AMC’s Cardiac/Pulmonary Rehab program, call Forkner at (828)349-8290.
