Celebrating heart health in February and beyond
In February, Novant Health UVA Health System celebrated Heart Month with a variety of events across our geography. On Feb. 2, team members "rocked their red" to support women’s heart disease awareness. We hosted a wine and dark chocolate after-hours event with the Fauquier Chamber of Commerce and Culpeper Chamber of Commerce at Narmada Winery on Feb. 8. UVA Cardiology team members offered blood pressure screenings to attendees of the chamber event. Later that week, we sponsored the Orange County Free Clinic “Share Your Heart” event to increase awareness about the offerings in Orange County.
Our physicians also provided some heart-smart education in our community. Ara Maranian, MD, spoke at Heritage Hunt on Feb. 20. This week, Alfred Burris II, MD, will correct some heart health myths on Feb. 28 at Jirani Coffeehouse in Manassas. Additional upcoming lectures are listed below and on our online calendar.
