Pana Community Hospital luncheon focus on heart disease

It was Thanksgiving Day, 1997 and Lori Holthaus was busy preparing for the holiday dinner. She chose to ignore the pain in her chest and down her arm. It was probably stress or the effects of an overactive schedule. As the pain got worse, the signs became clear that she was possibly having a heart attack, but Lori was only 34 years old and a heart attack wasn’t possible-or was it?

Pana Community Hospital invites you to hear the personal testimony of Lori Holthaus, who had a heart attack at only 34 years old. You will learn Lori’s story of that frightful day and how she got the help she needed in time. February’s “Lunch, Learn & Live Well” will be held Monday, February 24th from 11:30-12:30 pm in the Community Meeting Room lower level of Pana Community Hospital. The speakers are Lori Holthaus and Cindy Witt, Cardiopulmonary Rehab Coordinator of Pana Community Hospital. Lori will speak about her heart attack and Cindy will speak about the benefits of the Cardiopulmonary Rehab program and how it helps heart patients recover.

Heart disease is the #1 killer of men and women but prevention can play a key role in making sure you don’t become a victim of cardiovascular disease. The luncheon provides information not only on the warning signs of a heart attack, but also prevention and follow up care in case of an attack.

Pana Community Hospital has hosted educational luncheons titled “Better Breathers” for several years. Beginning in 2014, the luncheons will be called “Lunch, Learn & Live Well”. The focus for the luncheons remains the same--to provide educational speakers that promote community wellness and prevention. These luncheons feature different health topics and are offered free to the public the fourth Monday of each month. Reservations are not required. February’s luncheon is provided by Pana Community Hospital and Quad County Home Health.
