NEMG celebrates Heart Month

Throughout February, Northeast Medical Group (NEMG) celebrated Heart Month with special events designed to help raise awareness of heart disease and stroke.

Friday, Feb. 2 was National Wear Red Day, and employees across the health system promoted awareness of heart disease in women by wearing red, providing blood pressure screenings and handing out special heart-themed giveaways.

NEMG interventional cardiologists Sasanka Jayasuriya, MD, and Victor Mejia, MD, were featured in NBC TV vignettes airing throughout the month. Dr. Jayasuriya shared information about women and heart disease and Dr. Mejia talked about transcatheter aortic valve replacement.
