Good Samaritan Medical Center is Celebrating American Heart Month with Free Heart Health Lecture.
Good Samaritan Medical Center will collaborate with Randolph Community Partnership and Psi Iota Omega to present a free lecture on maintaining optimal heart health to commemorate American Heart Health Month.
At 7 p.m. on Tuesday, Feb. 24, Good Samaritan Medical Center will present “Supporting Heart Health for Everyone” at Randolph High School. The participants presenting this informative talk are Cliff Berger, MD, interventional cardiologist and medical director of Good Samaritan's Cardiac Catheterization Lab; Ann Glasman, MD, Steward Medical Group Internal Medicine; Darlene Gareri, RN, director of Good Samaritan Medical Center Cardiovascular Services; and Loren Dillingham, a heart disease survivor.
The panelists will discuss the importance of maintaining heart health for both men and women at any age and present various recommendations for maintaining a healthy heart.
“Heart disease can first appear differently in men than in women,” said Berger. “These differences can make diagnosing cardiac issues difficult, especially if a patient is unfamiliar with the symptoms associated with heart disease. Our goal with this discussion is to increase awareness and foster the prevention of cardiovascular disease.”
“We are always happy to have an opportunity to partner with Good Samaritan Medical Center about the health of our community,” said Treniece Lewis Harris, PhD, Co-Chair Health Committee for the Psi Iota Omega Chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. “Heart disease is a critical issue for our community and providing our neighbors with the tools and resources they need to prevent it is a priority for us.”
This free lecture will be held in the cafeteria at Randolph High School, 70 Memorial Parkway at 7 p.m. and is open to the public. Space is limited, please call 1-800-488-5959 to register. Refreshments will be served.
