May 29, 2018

GOSHEN, Ind. – You’re invited to an informational session on preventing coronary heart disease, with Dr. Abrar Sayeed, Invasive Cardiologist at Goshen Heart & Vascular Center at the next Thrive meeting. Dr. Sayeed will provide information and answer questions on how healthy eating, exercise, managing stress and quitting smoking can help you have a healthier heart. The meeting will be held at Greencroft Community Center in Goshen on Tuesday, June 5, 2018, from 10:00 to 11:00 a.m.

Coronary heart disease is a condition where plaque builds up in your arteries. As plaque builds up, it can make the arteries more rigid and narrow, resulting in reduced blood flow to the heart as well as other complications. By following a healthy lifestyle, many people can prevent or delay coronary heart disease from occurring. 

Thrive is a group that meets the first Tuesday of each month from 10:00 to 11:00 a.m. at the Greencroft Community Center located at 1820 Greencroft Boulavard in Goshen. These monthly meetings are free and open to anyone. Thrive provides an opportunity to connect with others and learn ways to better manage your health. Upcoming session topics will focus on stress management and knee arthritis. Visit Thrive for more information or call (574) 364-2496. No registration is required to attend.
