National Day of Dance is a fun, unique program that brings together health care professionals and community members to encourage heart healthy lifestyles. Sponsored by Community Medical Center and Monmouth Medical Center, Southern Campus, Day of Dance will be held at the Ocean County Mall on Saturday, February 6, 2016 from 10 am to 2 pm.

“Day of Dance provides a unique opportunity to learn and understand your personal risk factors to prevent heart disease and stroke,” says Michael Mimoso, MHSA, FACHE, president and chief executive officer, Community Medical Center. “This is the third year we will be presenting Day of Dance and our goal is to raise awareness on how cardiac disease affects women. Programs like this will help to build a healthier Ocean County.”

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. In addition to Day of Dance, both hospitals will offer heart health education programs throughout the month. The hospitals will also be lit red and “Glow Red’ to promote awareness of heart disease among women.

"Day of Dance" is a FREE EVENT and registration is not required.
