Heart health and benefits of exercise

Mitch Kline, Exercise Physiologist

Heart Health Month in February is a great time for individuals to look at what they can do to improve their heart health and lower heart disease risks.

That’s why Riverwood Healthcare Center is offering a “Heart Health: Benefits of Exercise” virtual seminar on Thurs., Feb. 23, 12:00 to 12:30 p.m.

Mitch Kline, exercise physiologist and therapist with Riverwood’s Cardiopulmonary Department, will explain how exercise can play a key role in maintaining heart health, presenting exercise basics and different ways to stay physically active, plus why and how to fit exercise into a busy schedule.

A robust question-and-answer session will follow the presentation. Participants can submit a question with their registration or via the chat function during the program.

REGISTER FOR THE SEMINAR. Participants will receive a confirmation email with a link to join the seminar.
