Heart - diseases and how we can help ourselves

On a nice and sunny June afternoon, a lecture "Heart - diseases and how we can help ourselves" was organized for the Panemune community in Kaunas, as a result of the initiative of the Healthy Heart association. The guest speaker Professor Rimvydas Šlapikas explained in detail the causes of heart diseases and the possible means of avoiding them, treating them, and living with them in concord.

After the lecture, over a cup of tea, the audience asked questions, happy to learn more specifically about their disease and how to treat or control it. It was great that we could chat and get to know each other immediately. We plan to continue cooperation with the Panemune community and its excellent chairman, Mr. Gediminas Žukauskas and active assistant Genovaite Žukauskiene.

We are grateful for the opportunity to meet with the public and spread the principles of a healthy lifestyle.
