Library and Penn Highlands Offering Health Literacy Awareness Program

CLEARFIELD – Do you have high blood pressure?  Do you know someone with cardiovascular disease?  Is high cholesterol a problem for you or someone you love?

In celebration of National Heart Month, the Joseph & Elizabeth Shaw Public Library and Penn Highlands Healthcare are offering the second program of the Health Literacy Awareness Series:  A Little DASH Will Do!

The program will be held at 6:30 p.m. Feb. 26  at the library.  Lori Rancik, registered nurse and case manager at Penn Highlands Dubois, is the featured speaker for the evening.

At the program, attendees will learn about the DASH diet, a healthy eating plan that incorporates more fruits, vegetables, grains, fish, poultry and nuts into one’s diet in an effort to lower the risk of high cholesterol and blood pressure, both contributors to cardiovascular disease.

Registration for this program is required.  The deadline to confirm attendance is Feb. 24 at 5 p.m.

This program supports the Health Literacy of the PA Forward | Pennsylvania Libraries initiative and is sponsored by Shaw Public Library and Penn Highlands DuBois.

If you would like to register or need more information about the program, call 814-765-3271 during regular business hours.

The Shaw Public Library is open Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m., Tuesdays and Thursdays from 10 a.m. until 9 p.m. and Fridays from 12 p.m. until 5 p.m.
