Bridgton Hospital Encourages a Healthier Lifestyle by Offering Heart Health Recipes

For many newly diagnosed cardiac and diabetes patients, part of the road to wellness includes making nutritional changes and other lifestyle behaviors. (For example, the patient may need to stop smoking, and/or start exercising and/or reduce or eliminate alcohol.)

As part of our efforts to help patients get healthy, Bridgton Hospital regularly presents a community education program called "Pump it Up", a program about heart health. As part of the presentation, recipes and links to Web sites that offer heart-healthy recipes are included.
