LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Covenant Health system is hosting a program Friday morning called Heart Matters and Dr. Ray Smith will be leading that lesson.
On our news at five, Dr. Smith gave us a preview and he was passionate about the message he wants to leave, "I want them to learn that heart disease does not have to be the number one killer in our country. The fact is i think we have everything we need to lower heart disease by 70% and we're just doing a horrible job in general. If there's one thing that i could stress, that's more important than any prescription i could write, is regular daily exercise."says Dr. Smith.
The Heart Matters seminar is a breakfast session tomorrow from 8 a.m to 9 a.m. at the Knipling Denter at 21st and Louisville. It's free and there are still some seats available. Just call 1-866-4COVENANT to reserve your spot.
