Posted: 1/23/2019

Heart disease is the leading cause of death for men and women in the United States. Learn how to make healthy choices and manage your heart health at Northern Dutchess Hospital’s Heart-Healthy Lunch and Learn.

The no-cost, educational Heart Month event is from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 19, in the hospital’s cafeteria conference room, 6511 Springbrook Ave.

A nutritious meal will be served while the audience hears from a cardiologist about risk factors, advanced treatments, blood pressure guidelines and more.

“You can make healthy changes to lower your risk of developing heart disease and properly manage existing health conditions,” said Dr. Douglas Kroll, a cardiologist with The Heart Center, a division of Hudson Valley Cardiovascular Practice, P.C.

Kroll and Roufia Payman, the hospital’s supervisor of outpatient nutrition counseling, will co-present.

“There is no magic pill when it comes to weight loss, but with simple changes, you can love the food that loves you back,” Payman said.

Registration is required; no walk-ins. 

Seating is limited and fills up quickly. To reserve a seat, visit or call 845-871-1720 ext. 1 (TTY 800-421-1220).
