The Old World Deli is the location and heart disease is the topic of the Feb. 8 "Science Pub" event, scheduled from 6 to 8 p.m. at 341 S.W. Second St. in downtown Corvallis.
Heart disease is the leading cause of death in the United States, England, and Canada. It kills one person every 34 seconds in the U.S. alone. The chance of developing coronary heart disease can be reduced by taking steps to prevent and control factors that put people at greater risk. Additionally, knowing the signs and symptoms of heart attack are crucial to the most positive outcomes after having a heart attack.
Kim Montagne, the director for the Samaritan Heart and Vascular Institute, will address the ways to prevent heart disease and provide information on various forms of heart disease. Montagne is a nurse practitioner who graduated from Oregon Health & Science University in 1998. She will help attendees understand the variety of different diseases that affect the heart, as well as what can be done to help prevent them.
Science Pub is open to all; no RSVP is necessary. It is held the second Monday of every month and is a partnership between the Downtown Corvallis Association, www.downtowncorvallis.org/, Oregon State University, http://oregonstate.edu/, and Oregon Museum of Science and Industry (OMSI) www.omsi.edu.
