Heart health program attracts large crowd

HOLYOKE, Mass. (WWLP) – Learning everything we can about protecting our heart always attracts a Western Massachusetts crowd during the observance of heart month during February.

Not surprisingly it was standing room only at Baystate Medical Center’s education center in Holyoke Sunday afternoon.

These Sunday sessions every year during February continue to be well attended.

The program which deals with taking the right medication for a healthier heart was very important to retired registered nurse Diane Debreuil.

“There is so much we don’t know about it, and I think as we get more exposed to it, we risk taking the wrong medicine without doing it correctly,” said Diane Dubreuil.

Since these health month programs began several years ago, these programs have attracted large crowds.

Two more Sunday programs remain during this year’s February series of healthy heart programs.
