Serving In Strength – Heart Health

February 28 @ 2:30 pm - 4:30 pm

Serving In Strength Heart Health on a bright red background

Join us in celebrating the launch of a new program, Serving in Strength: A Health & Wellness Series.

The February 28th launch event will focus on heart health with keynote remarks followed by an expert panel discussion and networking reception where guests are invited to enjoy refreshments and explore resources via informational tables located throughout the Memorial’s gallery.
Guests are also invited to participate in a special activity led by Community Building Art Works and the Cohen Military Family Clinic. In the past few decades, researchers have found that engaging in creative arts can significantly reduce physical stress indicators, including lowered cortisol levels and decreased blood pressure. Chronic stress has been associated with cardiovascular events, so making time for creativity can make a difference in the health of your heart.
