What you eat and drink, your activity level, how you cope with stress, and other individual lifestyle factors help determine the health of your heart. Eating a heart-healthy diet can help to control aspects of one’s health. Memorial Hospital and Health Care Center are offering Heart Fit, which is a class taught to help improve cholesterol levels and blood pressure control through changes in the diet.
Heart Fit consists of four weekly sessions, and the class will meet from 9:30 – 10:00 a.m. in the Mary Potter Meeting Room located inside Memorial Hospital and Health Care Center at 800 W. 9th Street in Jasper. The next class will meet on Thursdays from February 3 – 24, 2022.
The primary focus is to reduce saturated fat intake to lower LDL (“bad”) cholesterol and keep HDL (“good”) cholesterol up. The class is facilitated by a Registered Dietitian. Topics covered will include nutrition, physical activity, and weight management for a healthy heart.
Pre-registration is required and the cost is about $20. To register, please contact Memorial Hospital and Health Care Center’s Diabetes Education Department at 812-996-5729.
