BENNINGTON- Medical studies indicate that eating healthfully prevents heart disease. In recognition of the American Heart Association’s Heart Month, observed each February, Southwestern Vermont Health Care will host Cooking With Your Heart, a fun event designed to help community members lessen the effects of heart disease on their lives.

Presenting at the event will be Penny Grace, heart attack survivor and patient of SVMC Cardiology; Laura LaCroix, SVMC executive chef; and Alison Malmborg, MSN, ARNP, and Jennifer Thuermer, DNP, ACNP, cardiac care nurse practitioners at SVMC Cardiology. Each will share their favorite heart-healthy recipes, and Chef LaCroix will demonstrate a few that audience members can try at home. Tastings and a door prize will be offered.

The event will be held from 5:30 to 7 pm on Thursday, February 15, at Manchester Community Library, 138 Cemetery Avenue, in Manchester Center. The program is free and open to the public; however, seating is limited. Attendees are asked to RSVP at by February 10.
