’Tis the Season of Health Risks: “holiday heart” syndrome event tomorrow!
Tomorrow, Dec. 5, Plaza College will host a awareness event about “holiday heart” syndrome, a condition that occurs due to the combination of stress and excessive consumption of fatty foods and alcohol during the holiday season.
Dr. Darryl Anderson and his medical assistant students will discuss prevention strategies, as well as the importance of having your blood pressure checked. The event will provide on site blood pressure screenings, in addition to other medical tests and check ups that can spot potential cardiovascular trouble signs early.

Location: Plaza College, 118-33 Queens Blvd.
