February is American Heart Month, and the perfect time to get heart healthy! During the first week, the PuddleJumper Grille at the hospital is serving up heart-healthy selections for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. On Friday, we celebrate National Wear Red Day. (See https://www.goredforwomen.org/). Then mark your calendars and plan to attend a special heart health event on Monday, February 22. Dr. Richard Gitter, Mercy Medical Center Director of Cardiothoracic and Vascular Surgery – one of our valued outreach physicians – will present to the public in our Specialty Clinic waiting area. The free, educational evening will begin at 6pm with heart-healthy refreshments, blood pressure screenings, CPR training, and a variety of informative displays. Dr. Gitter’s presentation will follow at approximately 6:30.
