According to the
American Heart Association, heart disease is the leading cause of death in the U.S. and is affecting
both men and women at a younger age. Now more than ever, it’s important
to know your personal risk factors for heart disease, what a heart healthy
lifestyle looks like for you, and the warning signs that could identify
the onset of a heart attack.
Dr. James Parker, a North Oaks Physician Group cardiologist and North Oaks Health System’s
2016 Physician of the Year, can help you better understand what a heart
healthy lifestyle looks like at a free talk on Thursday, Feb. 9, from
6-7 p.m. The seminar is being hosted in the E. Brent Dufreche Conference
Center in observance of American Heart Month. Reserve your seat by registering
online or by calling North Oaks Corporate Communications at (985) 230-6647.
Dr. Parker is a fellow of both the American College of Cardiologists and
the Society for Cardiovascular Angiography and Interventions. He is certified
by the American Board of Internal Medicine in Internal Medicine and Cardiovascular
Disease and joined North Oaks Physician Group cardiology practice in 2010.
American Heart Month is observed each February to highlight the prevention
and treatment of heart disease.
The E. Brent Dufreche Conference Center is located within North Oaks Diagnostic
