Tanglewood Heart & Stroke Walk Oct 18
Wake Forest Baptist Health is proud to be the presenting sponsor of the 2014 Tanglewood Heart and Stroke Walk held on Oct. 18 at Tanglewood Park in Clemmons, NC. James Hoekstra, M.D., chair of Emergency Medicine at Wake Forest Baptist Health, and Chadwick Miller, M.D., executive vice-chair of Emergency Medicine, at Wake Forest Baptist Health, are co-chairs of the 2014 walk.
You are invited to participate by supporting one of our Wake Forest Baptist teams.
The American Heart Association's annual Heart and Stroke Walk raises millions of dollars for cardiovascular disease research and education across the country. Heart disease is this country's No.1 killer. But by exercising for as little as 30 minutes each day you can reduce your risk.
Companies can help employees reduce that risk by becoming a Fit Friendly company. The Fit Friendly program offers tools that encourage businesses to implement programs for improved physical activity and good nutrition such as campus-wide walking routes, healthier choices in company cafeterias and vending machines and health screenings. Last year, the American Heart Association (AHA) designated Wake Forest Baptist a Platinum-Level Fit Friendly company for implementing programs to encourage physical activity and good nutrition.
