NVRH invites community to attend Heart Health Fair Feb 16

Northeastern Vermont Regional Hospital (NVRH) will host a Heart Health Fair on Friday, February 16, 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. The Heart Health Fair is open to all staff
and community members and will be held in the NVRH Business Center.

Taking care of your heart is important and doing so may help prevent a heart attack. According to the American Heart Association, approximately every 40 seconds, someone in the United States will have a heart attack.

“Luckily, there are many things you can do to help reduce your risk of having a heart attack,” NVRH Cardiopulmonary Rehabilitation Nurse Manager Lyndi Medico said. “Regular exercise, cutting back on salt in your diet and finding healthy ways to manage stress in your life can all help reduce your risks.”

Heart Health Fair attendees will be able to talk with NVRH staff and providers about their risk for heart disease. They will also be able to receive free risk screenings, heart-healthy nutrition guides, exercise and activity ideas and info on tobacco cessation support. RecFit and Heart Space Yoga will also be available to
help community members start planning how to decrease their risk for heart disease through exercise and mindfulness.
