About half of all adults in America have cholesterol levels that are too high, which means there's a good chance yours are. Keeping your cholesterol levels healthy is a great way to keep your heart healthy and lower your chances of getting heart disease or having a stroke. Learn about the numbers that count for a healthy heart, diet and nutrition, recommended screenings, and coronary heart disease risk factors and you'll be a cholesterol whiz in no time. Snacks and bingo prizes are included.

Registration is required at (610)377-7070.
