Cardiologist leads Lunch and Learn program

DEMOPOLIS &045; With a new statistic on the rates of heart disease in the United States coming out each day, this week’s Lunch and Learn topic at Bryan W. Whitfield Memorial Hospital is one many people can learn from.

Friday at noon Dr. John Mantle, cardiologist, will lead a presentation on &8220;Advances in the Management of Heart Disease in Both Men and Women.&8221;

Lunch and Learn is an every-other-month program that is comprised of a series of one-hour luncheon meetings during which participants will hear experts discussing various health issues.

According to Chrissy Brooker, director of public relations and marketing at BWWMH, the program has been going on for quite a while, although it used to be known as &8220;Time Out.&8221;

Brooker said the programs are held to increase health awareness and be used as an educational tool for the community.

The cost for the meal is $5 each and the session will be held in the classroom.
