Happy Heart Health month!! Join Community Health Nurse, Heidi Bettcher, from Housatonic Valley Health District to discuss important ways you can be heart healthy including topics on blood pressure, diet and cardiovascular health.

The Housatonic Valley Health District serves New Milford, Oxford, Southbury, Washington, and Woodbury. The mission of the Housatonic Valley Health District is to create better health outcomes and promote the highest attainable standard of health. This is accomplished through three principles, which include prevention, education, and outreach. HVHD prevents disease, injury, and disability for their community through regular inspections of public and private businesses and homes to ensure conditions exist where people can be healthy. HVHD uses education to inform the public and health practitioners on public health best practices, policy information, and the impacts and methods of prevention for the spread of communicable diseases. HVHD conducts outreach to engage their communities that experience obstacles in accessing the public health services they need, deliver vaccines to the community, and advocate for needed and beneficial health policies.

Like all Southbury Public Library programs, this program is free to attend and open to anyone regardless of town of residency.  Registration is required.
