ST. GEORGE — Dixie Regional Medical Center will host a free heart health seminar Wednesday from 10 a.m. until noon in the SelectHealth Auditorium at 1424 E. Foremaster Drive, across the street south of the hospital’s River Road campus.

“The best part about the forum is it gives attendees an opportunity to ask the cardiologists any question,” said Michael Gargano, cardiovascular program specialist. “It’s the perfect place to have questions or concerns answered by experts.”

“If we can teach people how to prevent problems, we save not only lives, but improve people’s quality of life.”
