Wear Red

Join us for Burgess Health Center’s Wear Red for Heart Health Luncheon event on Valentine’s Day, Thursday, February 14. Burgess has organized presentations and more than a dozen booths to highlight dental health and the day’s heart health theme, “Love the Gums You’re With – the Connection to Heart Disease.”

Doors of the Onawa Community Center open at 10:30 a.m. with education stations and fun booths. Staley’s will provide a delicious buffet meal served at approximately 11:30 a.m.

Sheila Duarte, DDS of Family 1st Dental, Onawa, will discuss how to “Love the Gums You’re With – the Connection to Heart Disease.” As a dentist, Sheila screens every patient every day. Because gum disease can play a role in heart disease, patients are screened for any periodontal issues, even sleep apnea, and treated as needed.

Registration cost is $10 if paid on or before February 7, and $12 after that date. Active Burgess volunteers get $2 off the price of registration. Registration forms are available at all Burgess locations or by clicking here. Individuals may also register by calling (712) 423-9200.
