Join Northern Inyo Healthcare District Physical Therapist Adam Maxwell and Renown Health Cardiologist Dr. Christopher Rowan on Thursday, February 23, 5:30 p.m., for an NIHD Healthy Lifestyle Talk, “Love Your Heart: Keeping your heart happy and healthy through exercise.”

Maxwell, from Northern Inyo Hospital’s Rehabilitation Services, and Dr. Rowan will discuss importance of diet and exercise in maintaining heart health. Each will offer their professional insight into questions cardiac patients often ask them. These questions include how to get started exercising after a cardiac event, and how do today’s diet methods such as intermittent fasting apply to cardiac patients.

NIHD Chief Medical Officer Dr. Joy Engblade will host the talk, and moderate the closing question and answer period.
