According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, heart disease is the number-one killer of men and women in the U.S. On Friday, February 1, to recognize the American Heart Association’s national “Wear Red Day” initiative, Kimball Medical Center, a Barnabas Health facility, will hold a “Go Red Heart Day Fair” from 1 to 3 p.m. in Conference Rooms A and B in the hospital, located at 600 River Ave. in Lakewood.
The event will raise awareness of heart disease, heart attack and heart failure, as well as provide information on prevention and management of these conditions. In addition, guests will learn about cardiac rehabilitation, diabetes, smoking cessation and dietary management. Free blood pressure and bone density screenings and a body fat analysis will be provided, as well as information on additional community resources.
