The KSB Medical Group’s three cardiologists, Dr. Laxman Iyer, Dr. Monther El Bzour and Dr. Sohail Hanif, as well as Wellness Dietitian Carrie Grobe, will participate in a question-and-answer session with members of the audience.

Informational tables also will be set up to distribute giveaways and heart-related literature. Departments or agencies participating include the Lee County Health Department, the Dixon Family YMCA, and KSB’s Cardiac Rehab, Pulmonary Rehab, Nuclear Medicine, and ECHO departments.

The doors open at 5 p.m., and the event begins with a light soup dinner that will include a heart-healthy wheat roll and an oatmeal cookie. The Q-and-A starts at 6 p.m.
