Griffin Hospital in Derby to host 'Heart to Heart' talk

February is American Heart Month
DERBY - If you have questions about heart disease, treatment options and how to keep your heart fit and healthy, Griffin Hospital has the answers.

Griffin Hospital will host “Heart-to-Heart,” a free presentation by cardiologist Martin Plavec, MD, and Griffin’s Director of Cardiac Rehabilitation Eunice Lisk, at 6 p.m. Feb. 11 in the hospital’s Meditation and Learning Center, 130 Division St.

These two heart experts will provide easy-to-understand information about warning signs for heart problems and what you can do to help prevent them. They will also discuss common heart issues, like Congestive Heart Failure and high blood pressure, how to get tested for heart disease, and discuss the benefits and risks of treatment options.
In addition, attendees can receive free blood pressure screenings, Body Mass Index readings and medical consultation about their results.
The event is in recognition of American Heart Month.
Heart disease is the leading cause of death for both men and women, but heart disease is preventable and controllable.

The presentation is part of Griffin Hospital's Healthy U “Tuesday Talks,” a series of free wellness talks featuring Griffin Hospital medical experts and community partners providing trusted health information and answers to questions on a wide range of topics.
All Tuesday Talks are held in Griffin Hospital’s Meditation and Learning Center at 130 Division Street.
