CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. – Small changes can equal big rewards when we’re talking about heart health and weight management, according to Cardiologist Dr. Arshad Safi, and Weight Management physician Dr. Paul Klink.
Dr. Safi and Dr. Klink will present a free community seminar, “A Lifestyle your Heart will Love,” on Thursday, Feb. 27, 2014, from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at Wilson College’s Brooks Complex Auditorium in Chambersburg.
The event is free, but registration is required by February 20. Call (717) 262-4472 or visit SummitHealth.org/HeartSeminar to register.
According to Dr. Safi, of Summit Cardiology, heart disease is still a major cause of death in the U.S. But, there are certain risk factors for heart disease that we can control.
“Obesity is a major risk factor,” Dr. Safi explained. “We have heard everyone talk about obesity being on the rise in the United States over the last 20 years, but what you don’t hear people talk about is how relatively painless lifestyle improvements can lead to major benefits. We need to take control of what we can to help us in our fight for a healthy heart.”
Dr. Klink, of Summit Weight Management Services, agreed.
“There are small changes we can make in our lives to help lower the risk of heart disease,” he explained. “During this seminar, Dr. Safi and I will provide you with tips and information to help you avoid daily pitfalls and start your journey to a healthier heart.”
