Oswego Health announces its rescheduled Healthy You event, which will focus on how women can remain heart healthy. It will be a night of education, wellness and fun on Wednesday, May 9th at GS Steamers, 70 E. First Street in Oswego.

The event was originally planned in February, but due to inclement weather it was postponed until May.

Oswego Health cardiologists Thomas Grady, Jr., MD, and Oluwadamilola Ojutalayo, MD, along with Kathleen Whitney, RN, of Lakeside Heart Center, will be panel presenters at the event.

The presenters will discuss how women experience different heart attack symptoms than men and the important role a heart rehabilitation program plays following a cardiac event.

In addition to the presenters, there will be representatives from the Oswego YMCA and the America Heart Association, who will promote details on how to embrace a heart healthy lifestyle.
