WMBC-TV: Heart Month

HackensackUMC, part of the Hackensack Meridian family, celebrates National Heart Month. To demonstrate the importance of cardiovascular health, the Heart and Vascular Hospital at HackensackUMC is holding heart-healthy events throughout the month. At this event, HackensackUMC team members raced head-to-head on stationary bikes in the main lobby of the hospital. Joseph Parrillo, M.D., chairman of the Heart and Vascular Hospital at HackensackUMC says that heart disease can be prevented by three things: good nutrition, rest and exercise.
