ALBERT LEA, Minn. — Heart disease is a leading cause of death and although you lack the power to change some risk factors – such as family history, sex or age – there are some key heart disease prevention steps you can take to reduce your risk.
Heart disease will be the focus of a free “Health Talk Series” for seniors scheduled from 2 to 3 p.m. on Tuesday, May 28, at St. John’s Lutheran Home, Fountain Lake Community Chapel, 1861 Eagle View Circle, Albert Lea. This is the second of a three session program and is free and open to the public.
Christopher (Topher) Lee, D.N.P, cardiology provider at Mayo Clinic Health System in Albert Lea, will share information and answer questions regarding heart disease. You will learn common terminology, aspirin therapy, and why your blood pressure and cholesterol are important in managing your heart health.
The final session is scheduled for Tuesday, June 25 and will feature bladder health.
