The Penn State Beaver Health Center and Office of Student Affairs hosted a "Love Your Heart" event last Wednesday in the Student Union Building and the Brodhead Bistro.

The program was designed to increase students’, staff, and faculty awareness of heart health issues, including how to prevent heart attacks, how to develop a healthy diet, and ways to keep the heart strong.

Mitchell Pfeiffer, campus physician, gave a presentation about diet and use and misuse of alcohol and supplements. The YMCA presented information on various forms of aerobic exercise, and C.S. Kim Karate provided material about cardio kickboxing and self-defense techniques.

Other information sessions were presented by Chiropractor Joel Lopacinski, the Beaver County Cancer & Heart Association, the American Heart Association, the Pennsylvania Department of Health, Brighton Pharmacy and Medic Rescue.
