    About Love Your Heart

    Heart disease claims the lives of far too many women, especially here in eastern North Carolina. That’s why Vidant Health, East Carolina Heart Institute and our physician partners are working together to offer risk assessments, screenings, education and advanced treatment options.

    Learn more by joining us at one of our Heart Truth tour events in your area this February as we celebrate American Heart Month with the “Return of Zonya.” Zonya Foco, America’s Nutrition Leader, kicked off our Heart Truth Tour in 2012 with a bang. Her exuberance and energetic style made her message of how just one small thing we can all do to improve our heart health was a hit. We’ve been asked many times when we would bring Zonya back. The time is now!

    Come laugh and get energized as she shares her tips for healthy eating, exercise, stress management and more lifestyle choices and changes for optimal heart health. It’s all new information and all new fun.
