Healthy living event

Posted onPosted on 25th Mar

THE public are invited to an open evening on Wednesday, 26th March when presentations and quizzes will focus on lifestyle factors that can increase the risk of coronary heart disease and the small changes that can be made to reduce these risk factors.

Annie Palmer, membership manager for East Midlands Ambulance Trust, said: “I’m looking forward to presenting this British Heart Foundation interactive workshop with Sherwood Forest Hospitals.

“It is important for people to keep their heart healthy, whatever your age. It is the most important thing you can do to help prevent and manage heart disease.

“This workshop will highlight how taking exercise and eating a healthy diet, as well as being aware of dangers such as smoking, drinking, high blood pressure, and stress are all important for your long-term heart health, regardless of the condition of your heart.

“As well as providing advice on how to identify potential risks, participants of the session will receive literature for them to look through at home and share with their families, including BMI charts and dietary guidance.”

The event takes place from 6-8pm in Lecture Theatre 2, King’s Mill Hospital.
