Healthy Heart Day goes online.

So you never have to miss a beat!

The ever-popular Annual Healthy Heart Day is the P.R.E.V.E.N.T. Clinic’s community outreach program that attracts over 500-participants from across Cambridge, Guelph, Wellington and Kitchener-Waterloo region. The event provides attendees with expert-lead experiential workshops ranging from risk-reduction and diabetes education to cooking demos, yoga, fitness and Tai Chi. With over 30 not-for-profit organizations and para-medical vendors set up at the health fair, and with exclusive television coverage by Rogers TV, Healthy Heart Day reaches more and more at-risk patients every year, doing our part to support the heart health of our community.

Healthy Heart Day: an event that comes from the heart.

The first Healthy Heart Day was launched in 2004 in memory of Mrs. Linda D’Souza, a matriarch of the Pandey-D’Souza family. As a dedicated nurse of 4-decades, Mrs. D’Souza was a pillar of her community, faithfully involved in bettering the lives of the less fortunate. Carrying on her legacy of commitment and civic responsibility, Dr. and Mrs. Pandey consider the heart health concerns of the Cambridge region to be their personal responsibility. Healthy Heart Day, then, is a labour of love not only for Grandma Linda but for the community as well.
