Cholesterol Focus of Discussion at Community Center Workshop
High blood cholesterol is one of the three major risk factors for heart disease. Yet, even with all the attention given to this health risk, one of every eight American adults still continue to have high levels of total cholesterol, while even more have low levels of "good" cholesterol.
The Fullerton Community Center will hold an informational presentation focusing on cholesterol on Wednesday, April 27, beginning at 10 a.m. Registered nurses from the RN-to-BSN Program at California State University, Fullerton, will lead the hour-long educational workshop. Attendees will learn to make better sense of the different levels of cholesterol: good, bad, and total. Also, attendees will discover positive treatment options for lowering high blood cholesterol including tips on nutrition, exercise, and medications.
Pre-registration is required by calling (714) 738-6305 or visiting the Fullerton Community Center at 340 W. Commonwealth Ave. Persons requiring special accommodations to attend are asked to notify the center prior to April 27.
