Cardiologist to host free wellness forum

The public is invited to attend a heart health and wellness forum that runs 6:30-8:00 p.m. May 14 at St. Martin’s University.

The first 400 people who arrive will receive a free copy of Dr. James Beckerman’s new book, “Heart to Start: The Eight-Week Exercise Prescription to Live Longer, Beat Heart Disease and Run Your Best Race.” Attendees will be able to ask questions and hear motivational tips from Beckerman, a cardiologist with the Providence Heart and Vascular Institute.

Beckerman believes that “exercise is the least prescribed and most effective heart treatment,” according to a news release. He is also author of “The Flex Diet.”
