February is Heart Month, and Prisma Health (formerly GHS) is celebrating with its annual Prisma Health Laurens County Hospital’s ROCKING HEART DAY on Saturday, Feb.9 at the Clinton Y from 10 a.m. – noon.
A free Zumba cardio workout starting at 10 a.m. will be led by Tricia Eichhorn, MD., a Prisma Health
(formerly GHS) bariatric surgeon from Greenville. Dr. Eichhorn is also a licensed Zumba instructor and offers classes to her patients both before and after surgery.
Zumba makes exercise fun, in an easy to follow, upbeat, Latin-inspired and a calorie-burning activity you perform at your own pace
Before or after the class there are free health screens and healthy treats, chats with health professionals and local physicians and free giveaways.
The health screenings include blood pressure checks, body mass index (BMI), cardiovascular risk assessment, and hip-to-waist ratio offered to all participants by our own HeartLife team of medical professionals.
In addition free heart healthy information will be available for healthy snacks and recipes, education information, and one-on-one chats with health professionals.
A special gift will be given to all registered participants.
You do not have to dance to participate. Screenings will be held throughout the two hour program.
Registration is not mandatory for health screens but encouraged for the Zumba class at 10 a.m. Sign up at the Clinton Y or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
