Wheeling Hospital Celebrates Move More Month
April 11, 2019
WHEELING – April is Move More Month, and to celebrate, Wheeling Hospital is sponsoring a walk at Oglebay Resort & Conference Center on April 16. The free, 30-minute exercise begins at 5:30 p.m. and is open to anyone who wants to participate.
Dr. James Comerci, director of Wheeling Hospital’s Family Medicine Residency Program, will be joined by several program residents to staff information tables and to provide medical assistance if needed. Other sponsors are the Wheeling Park Commission and Oglebay Foundation, in conjunction with the American Heart Association (AHA).
Comerci said, “The purpose of the walk is to promote awareness of a healthier lifestyle, as heart disease continues to be a growing issue. Education and exercise are important components in heart health.”
The walk will begin at the Oglebay Foundation building near the Mansion Museum. Fruit and water will be provided to the participating walkers. When walkers register at the event, they will receive a ticket entering them for a drawing for prizes donated by Wheeling Hospital, Oglebay and the AHA.
For more information, call Wheeling Hospital’s Community Education and Outreach Department at 304-243-3339.
