Local community members got a jump on their Valentine’s Day fun on Monday, February 13 during the “Heart Healthy Happy Hour” at Mount Saint Mary College.

Spearheaded by the college’s Desmond Center for Community Engagement and Wellness and held on-campus, the event invited local residents to learn about heart health, nutrition, stress management, building healthy relationships, and more.

Mount Nursing students and faculty were on-site to provide blood pressure screenings and heart health education. Meanwhile, attendees enjoyed candle decorating workshops led by Healing Looks Great on You, Inc.’s Isabel Rojas. Rounding things out were a selection of healthy mocktails provided by the Shoot Ya Shot Juice Bar. 

The Desmond Center offers accessible and equitable educational, health, and wellness services for community members and families in the local area. All services are free of cost and open to the public.
