February isn’t just for chocolate hearts, it’s Heart Health Month, too. To celebrate and educate, NorthBay Healthcare is launching a series of heart-healthy events at the VacaValley Wellness Center in Vacaville that will span into March.
For starters, Eric Hassid, M.D., will discuss healthy living at 5:30 p.m. on Feb. 16 in the conference center. On Facebook, #OurDocTalk in February will feature a heart-related expert. “Like” our Facebook page and watch for details coming soon. A Super Saturday on March 4 will offer health screenings from 9 a.m. to noon and fitness classes between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m., free of charge and open to the general public at NorthBay HealthSpring Fitness, also at VacaValley Wellness Center.
A heart-healthy nutrition class will be offered from 2 to 3 p.m. on March 1 and again from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. on March 15 by Registered Dietitian Laura Hitt in the conference facility.
