JOPLIN, Mo. – An area hospital is giving you the chance to learn about your heart, and you can’t beat the price.

One day each month, Dr. Jahan Zeb, a Mercy Interventional Cardiologist, will be giving a free lecture on the topic of heart health. He’ll touch on a variety of topics ranging from healthy eating, to exercise. He says you’re never too young or too old to start learning about heart health.

“So heart disease actually starts in youth and by the time you graduate high school you already have the beginning of plaque build up and different conditions that can lead to heart disease later, most importantly lifestyle factors.”
