On Saturday, February 4th from 10 am – 2 pm, Deborah Heart and Lung Center will host the 7th Annual Women’s Health EXPO at Lenape High School at Church and Hartford Roads, Medford, NJ.
A variety of Deborah physicians – representing various specialties – will join with a host of other health professionals to provide health screenings to the more than 1,000 women expected to attend.
“Each year we work in conjunction with the American Heart Association’s Wear Red Day,” said Renee Bullock-Palmer, M.D., Director of the Women’s Heart Center. “We want to raise awareness about the need to fight heart disease in women.”
Joining Dr. Palmer will be Denise Zingrone, D.O., Associate Director of the Women’s Heart Center; Jenine Vecchio, M.D., Director, Diabetes Center at Deborah; Navdeep Brar, M.D., Attending, Pulmonary; and Niya Jones, M.D., Associate, Cardiology.
“Bringing together the expertise of pulmonology, cardiology, endocrinology, and diabetes, we can really offer our visitors a full picture of what it takes for a woman to stay ‘heart healthy,’” she added. “We are really looking forward to the one-on-one time with our visitors.”
Among the screenings Deborah’s staff will provide are blood pressure, glucose, body fat analysis, pulmonary function testing, balance, cholesterol/lipid panels, sleep apnea, asthma information, peripheral arterial disease assessment, bariatrics, and wound and lung cancer information.
