Heart Health

The Heart of COVID-19

Medical experts recognize that older adults and people with existing medical conditions, including heart disease, are at higher risk for complications.

We consulted Dr. Nitza Alvarez at the Tri-County Heart Institute to find out what heart patients need to know about how COVID 19 may affect their heart.

Also, Walk With A Doc has been on hold for a couple of months while the community adjusts to the COVID pandemic. Follow Tri County Heart Institute’s Facebook page for the most current information.  Once they resume, you can join Dr. Alvarez the second Saturday of the month for Walk With a Doc. Participants will enjoy a brief presentation on an important health topic followed by a “walk-at-your-own-pace” lead by Dr. Alvarez.
