Photos and Story by Kate Chester
On Feb. 15, the Sylvania Campus of Portland Community College hosted its fourth annual Heart Beat Health Fair in support of American Heart Month – a national designation by the American Heart Association that takes place annually in February.
Free and open to the public, The Heart Beat Fair attracted a multitude of attendees interested in heart-healthy information. Many of the college’s allied health departments joined forces to celebrate ways to gain and maintain heart health. Attendees were able to take advantage of free blood pressure screenings and fitness technology testing, as well as obtain information about cardiac rehabilitation, the impact of diet and exercise on heart health, and smoking cessation.
