Cardiac health important all-year round as heart moth nears end

Charles City, Iowa – With today marking February’s last day, that means the end of heart month.

It starts with cardiac rehab, a medically supervised exercise program.

Pickar adds it will improve your overall lifestyle.


Cardiac rehab is for men and women of all ages who’ve had stent replacements, angioplasty, bypass or valve surgery and other heart related conditions.
