Free Newport Hospital lecture scheduled for Feb. 23

Health ManOn Tuesday, February 23, from 6:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m., Newport Hospital will offer a community lecture on keeping your heart healthy. Cardiologist George Charlton, MD, of The Cardiovascular Institute at Newport Hospital, and Sam Baldwin, MS, cardiopulmonary rehabilitation coordinator, will lead a discussion about steps patients can take to help prevent heart disease.

“Making even small changes toward improving heart health – such as healthy eating and regular exercise – can often have a big impact on your quality of life and reducing your risk of heart disease,” said Charlton.

This marks the second year of Newport Hospital’s lecture series, which offers the community an opportunity to learn more about different health issues and interact with hospital clinicians. The lecture on Feb. 23 will be held in Newport Hospital’s Gudoian Conference Room, just off the main lobby of the hospital at 11 Friendship Street, Newport. Registration is not required, however seating is limited. To reserve a seat, call 401-845-1492 or sign up online at www.newporthospital.org. Free blood pressure screenings will also be provided from 6 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.
