High cholesterol is a serious health problem that affects about 50 million Americans. It's a major risk factor for cardiovascular disease (CVD), which half of all men and a third of all women will get at some time in their lives.
Dr. Deepak Thekkoott, an interventional cardiologist with Cardiovascular Institute of the South, will address how cholesterol and heart disease are connected and what you can do to optimize your cholesterol levels during an “Ask the Doctor” Lunch and Learn session Thursday, Feb. 23, from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. in the Staff Development Classroom at Lane Regional Medical Center, 6300 Main St, in Zachary.
Advance reservations are required by calling 654-LANE (5263). The session is FREE and includes a light lunch.
