Heart Disease Awareness
February 3, 2009
The month of February is heart disease awareness month. Cardiac Rehabilitation staff and patients dedicated a group photo to help increase knowledge about prevention of heart disease. If you know your risk factors and work with your healthcare professionals to lower those risks, heart disease can be prevented . The hospital staff was encouraged to wear red on February 6th during National Wear Red Day.

"Clay Countians are so fortunate to have Cardiac Rehabilitation Services here in Clay Center, KS. Each and every client is treated as an individual with respect, kindness, and caring. Not only did I want to complete a good program for myself, but for the Cardiac Rehabilitation staff."
