ECH hosts Healthy Heart Day Feb. 23

ELIZABETHTOWN - Elizabethtown Community Hospital Auxiliary will be hosting its annual Healthy Heart Day Tuesday, Feb. 23 from 3-6 p.m. at Elizabethtown Community Hospital.

This event offers community members the opportunity to take part in a free heart health screening. Participants are able to have a blood pressure check, glucose level testing, cholesterol level check and osteoporosis screening. They are able to learn easy exercise tips, sample and take home heart-healthy recipes, get important health information, view various exhibits and talk with professionals about taking care of their heart.

This year, Healthy Heart Day will also feature an opportunity to be listed on the national bone marrow registry. This list of potential donors is incredibly important to curing many diseases and conditions in both adults and children. A simple questionnaire and painless cheek swab provides all the information needed to determine if a match can be made.

Call the hospital for questions or additional information about the event at 873-3003.
