Memorial Hospital hosting heart education series

Posted: Updated:

YAKIMA, Wash.-- Yakima Valley Memorial Hospital is hosting a heart education series through February.

They'll have a speaker coming in every Thursday this month to talk about living healthy. People who go to one of the speeches will get a free heart health screening and a coupon for a $99 vascular screen. The hospital says it's never too late to start making good choices.

"Whether you're young, or on the older side, it's always a good time to start or reinforce good lifestyle habits," says Dennis Hoover of Memorial Hospital.

The next speaker is a vascular surgeon who will talk about the warning signs of vascular disease. That starts at 6:30 tomorrow night.
