TOMS RIVER – Community Medical Center, an RWJBarnabas Health facility, will host its annual Dancing for Heart Health event on Saturday, February 3 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Ocean County Mall. Groups from local dance schools will perform throughout the day, and guests at the event will have a chance to take part as well.
Heart disease and stroke are the number one killers of American adults, claiming more lives than all forms of cancer. Since 1963, the United States Congress has proclaimed February “American Heart Month” to educate the public on the dangers of heart disease and the importance of a heart-healthy lifestyle.
This event is meant to celebrate American Heart Month and to encourage people of all ages to dance and keep moving as a way to stay heart healthy.
The event is free and pre-registration is not required. Participants may stop by throughout the day and learn basic steps to achieving optimal heart health. Free blood pressure, blood sugar and body mass index screenings will be offered. Information on cardiology, oncology, sleep, diabetes, and stroke services will be offered.
