Healthy Heart talks in Ballina and Castlebar

Local heart charity Croí’s Heart Smart Mayo programme which is a collaboration with HSE West’s Mayo PCCC is hosting a series of free public talks on Eating for a Healthy Heart in Ballina and Castlebar in the coming weeks.

Mairead Walsh will speak on Thursday November 26 in the Ramada Hotel, Ballina, at 7pm, and Siobhan Quigley will speak in the TF Royal Hotel, Castlebar, at 7pm on Thursday December 10.

Speaking at the launch of this series of public talks, Croí ‘Heart Smart’ Mayo co-ordinator, Ailish Houlihan, said: “The aim of this initiative is to raise levels of awareness on how one’s risk factors for heart disease can be managed through dietary changes. Each speaker will address issues such as reducing cholesterol levels, the link between salt and blood pressure, the impact of weight and obesity, and food labelling – all of which are hugely relevant to the prevention of coronary artery disease.”
