‘Love Your Heart’ Potluck Luncheon to be held February 4

February is National Heart Health Month. If you have a heart, you could have heart disease. Learn more about this deadly disease and what you can do to keep your heart healthy at a “Love Your Heart” Potluck Luncheon Tuesday, February 4, at the McClintic Library at noon.

Hosted by the WVU Extension Service and Pocahontas Memorial Hospital, men and women are invited to join us for an hour of fellowship, education, giveaways, door prizes and good food. Wear red to show your support and bring a healthy “red” dish to share. Invite your friends to join us. RSVP to the Extension Office at 304-799-4852 by 10 a.m. Tuesday, February, 4.

Heart and blood vessel disease is our nation’s number one killer. About half of the deaths from heart and blood vessel disease are from coronary heart disease, which includes heart attack. According to the American Heart Association, about 325,000 people a year die of coronary attack before they get to a hospital or emergency room. West Virginia ranks fourth among all states in the nation for heart disease death rates.

Please join us for this very important event.
