The Central East Regional Cardiovascular Rehab program, led by Scarborough Health Network (SHN), is putting its whole heart into Heart Month events this year, as we bring back our well-loved virtual education sessions, featuring cardiologists and cardiovascular experts speaking on several heart health topics. From living a heart-healthy lifestyle to finding out if you are at risk for heart disease and more, community members are invited to come out, participate, and learn at Heart to Heart events throughout February.
Heart to Heart Virtual Education Sessions
Community members are also invited to attend virtual education sessions to learn about improving heart health and achieving a better quality lifestyle. Sessions will feature many experts — including cardiologists, a social worker and more — who will have free-flowing discussions about a number of heart health topics.
Heart to Heart Community Clinic at a local mall
They are also bringing back their well-loved community clinic. SHN staff and community members will have the chance to meet with staff from the regional cardiovascular rehab program, and get a checkup on their heart health. Staff will be performing blood pressure tests, providing consultations on heart disease risk factors, and offering education on improving heart health.
