February is American Heart Month and a South Jersey medical group wants their community to know that heart health and stroke awareness go hand in hand.
The Shore Physicians Group held a Be Well-Connected Community Breakfast on the morning of Friday, February 8th, at the Greate Bay Country Club.
Doctors were on hand to go over the risk factors associated with stroke and heart health as well as the need to act quickly if symptoms appear.
"What we're doing today could save someone's potential live, or their friends or family's life by recognizing these symptoms that should make them seek medical attention," said Neurologist at Shore Physicians Group Joshua Daniel.
The event also covered the diet and excise recommendations to prevent and treat heart disease.
Following the free breakfast, attendees were able to ask the physicians questions on heart health and stroke awareness.
