Available screenings include Body Mass Index (BMI), electrocardiograms (EKGs), venous ultrasound, carotid artery, audiology, and cholesterol/triglycerides. Additionally, Q&A consultations with cardiologist Dr. Jerry Greenberg and internist Dr. Dennis Lipton will be available. Attendees will have an opportunity to browse a silent auction with items donated by generous local retailers as well as meet with a number of health and wellness vendors.
From 10:00am to noon, guests will enjoy a catered heart healthy buffet brunch, make their final bids at the silent auction and take advantage of special offers from the health and wellness vendors, who will make special presentations on stage throughout the morning.
At 11:30am, XTERRA world champion, Josiah Middaugh, will speak on fitness and nutrition. A Q&A with audience participation will follow.
Lynn Blake, founder of Starting Hearts and sudden cardiac arrest survivor added, “This is our favorite event each year. We are always excited to bring low cost screenings to our community, and this year, so excited to have Josiah join us. We know we can reduce cardiac arrests by encouraging preventative medicine and healthy lifestyles, so we encourage family, friends, and colleagues to join us on this special day.”
