25 Feb 2019 Highlights

Ocean Healthcare network members are celebrating HEART HEALTH AWARENESS MONTH, with a special emphasis on promoting Women’s Heart Health.

“It’s mostly about awareness,” says Lisa Olender, Assistant Vice President of New Business Development and Marketing. “Many people traditionally think of cardiac issues as more of a male problem, but the data indicates otherwise.”

Activities have included community-based awareness classes, dissemination of important heart health information, Go Red Days, and even distribution of heart-healthy recipes.

“At the end of the day, our mission is to keep people healthy,” Lisa explains. “We prefer preventing cardiac issues before they occur, rather than treating a post-cardiac care patient.”
