Can’t HEART-ly wait!



IT’S HEART HEALTH MONTH!!! Keeping a healthy heart needs to be a major priority. In honor of this month the Healthy Woman program at South Texas Regional Medical Center is holding a FREE event.

This Thursday they will present the  Heart Healthy Woman with a “Body, Mind, Spirit” theme.  The Gym, located at 1805 Highway 97 East in Jourdanton, will host the event from 5:30 – 7:30 pm.

For the “Body”  there will be an intro to Zumba, a dance fitness program, given by Lanessa Harlan owner of The Gym.  STRMC will provide FREE health screenings such as blood pressure, cholesterol, Pulse Oximetry and Body Mass Index. These are great screenings to get to ensure you are at your best possible health. After the class, a heart healthy meal will be served complete with heart healthy red wine and a heart healthy dark chocolate dessert.

For your “Mind”, speaker Carolyn Dowd, PA of South Texas Heart Clinic is ready to inform you of all things heart.

Jerri Yzaguirre of Massage Therapy Center will be there for your “Spirit” pampering and relieving stress with mini-massages.

The screenings will begin at 5:30pm. Intro to Zumba from 6:00 to 6:30pm. Dinner and speaker 6:30 to 7:30. Dress to workout if you’re interested in doing the intro to Zumba. If you mainly want to go for the screenings then dress to eat and drink.
