Heart disease is the leading cause of death for both men and women in the United States.

The good news? It is also one of the most preventable. Making heart-healthy choices, knowing your family health history and the risk factors for heart disease, having regular check-ups and working with your physician to manage your health are all integral aspects of saving lives from this often silent killer.

Join Dr. Stanley Katz, Chief of Cardiology at Peconic Bay Medical Center, as he talks about how to prevent cardiac disease and tackles some of the biggest misconceptions about heart health. He will speak on May 4 from 4 to 5 p.m. at Peconic Landing, 1500 Brecknock Rd. in Greenport.

The talk is free and open to the public. Please call 631-548-6804 or email for more information.
