State of the Art Cardiac Center Hosts 3rd Annual Heart Walk to Increase Heart Disease Awareness.

(Kingston, JA) Immediate release March 17, 2008—The Heart Institute of Caribbean has been a source of hope since its inception in 2005. The sprawling state-of-the art comprehensive cardiac center already has a variety of services for patients who require treatment for heart disease. The cardiac centre has also been on the forefront of preventative life-saving techniques. The annual 3K Heart Walk represents this trend in superior cardiac care. “We are currently preparing for the 3rd staging of our annual 3K Walk… A healthy lifestyle incorporates many elements including Healthy Body and Soul; Healthy Finances and living environments, Healthy Spirit and Thoughts, and finally Healthy Judgment which includes the ability to make sound decisions about products and services,” said an enthusiastic Dainia Baugh, President of HIC. The 3rd Annual 3K Heart Walk and 1st Annual Heart Healthy Lifestyle Fair which will take place on HIC grounds April 6, 2008 beginning at 7 am is a cool down from the Carnival season. Byron Lee and the Dragonnaires will be on hand to provide musical motivation, Gymkhana and Spartan fitness instructors will be conducting stretches and Prime Minister, The Hon Mr. Bruce Golding will lead the crowd as they, “Walk their Way to Longer Life.” The campaign has realized tremendous success in the last few years and the addition of the Health Fair promises a new interesting dynamic. “The Heart Institute has one mission; to make high quality cardiac care available to all,” cited Dr. Ernest Madu, Chairman and CEO. Proceeds go towards HIC’s Open Access program for indigent patients. Voluntary contributions of $J200, $J300, $J500 or $J1000 can be made when filling out the walk registration form or you may visit: www.caribbeanheart.com/3kwalk to fill out the electronic copy.
