PRESQUE ISLE — The free “Healthy Heart” themed event originally planned for Go Red Day on Feb. 7 at Northern Light AR Gould Hospital was postponed due to the winter storm that day. The event is now planned for Friday, Feb. 21 at the hospital.
The hospital will offer free blood pressure and BMI screenings, as well as educational displays about nutrition, tobacco use, physical activity, and more in collaboration with ACAP’s Let’s Go program and SNAP-Ed. Participants can also join in mini yoga sessions, pick up some heart healthy recipes, have fun at a selfie photo booth, and sign up for door prizes.
The event takes place from 10 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. in the hospital’s conference center and is intended for both the public and AR Gould employees.
With February being Heart Health Month, it is the perfect time for people to learn more about their risk for heart disease and the steps that need to be taken to help their hearts.
